These Are the 10 Highest Paying Jobs in Connecticut
With prices everywhere going up, it might be time to think about pursuing one of the highest paying jobs in Connecticut.
I checked things out at bestplaces.net just to see what the actual cost of living number was in Connecticut, and it was pretty high at 107.8. So just what does that number mean? Well, the number is based on a U.S. average of 100. Any number below 100 means the state is cheaper than the U.S. average to live in. A cost of living index above 100 means the state is more expensive to live in, Connecticut is more expensive.
So what kind of salary do you need to actually live somewhat comfortably in Connecticut? Again, thanks to a little research, I found out that a family of two adults and two children would need a combined income of $118,551 per year to have a pretty good life in the state. Now that number does vary depending on what part of the state you live in, but that's basically the average amount.
So what do you do if you fall short of that number? It might be a good idea to scroll down and check out what the highest paying jobs in Connecticut are according to zippia.com.
