Indiana Among Top 10 States in Wage Growth
Statistics released this month by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics suggests Indiana posted the ninth-highest average wage growth in the Unites States from 2016-2017. Overall, the state ranks 34th in average wage, but University of Indianapolis Associate Professor of Finance Matt Will says "that is only the starting point." He says, when cost of living and cost of housing numbers are factored in, Indiana fares much better.
