Looking for the best state in America to find a job today? Maybe you are looking for some of the perks that a job has to offer, such as a modern work environment, an above-average entry level salary and the best employee benefit offerings in the market? After spending a great deal of time and effort training or attending college for your career, what it often comes down to is finding a job that can offer you more out of the gate.
Min. wage appears to be highest in Washington, Oregon and Connecticut.
As far as emp. benefits, I assume that would have to do with the actual place of employment and not the state itself. That would take some shopping around.
After spending a great deal of time, money and effort on training/education, minimum wage levels should be the last of your worries. And as Sed-me says, work bennies will be dependent on the company, not law.
