I live in Western Massachusetts but commute to Connecticut to work. I’m getting very weary of the daily ride, but thanks to Massachusetts business climate, it doesn’t look like I’ll be able to find anything closer to home. From the Boston Globe – “Number crunchers agree: Massachusetts is no bargain for employers”
Massachusetts is an expensive place to do business. No argument there. But are we the most expensive place in the country to do business, with wages far above the national average and far above other expensive places like New York?A Northwestern economist disputed the numbers but he still found veracity in the study.
Economy.com says yes. The Pennsylvania forecasting firm came out with a study last month that identified Massachusetts as the country's most expensive state and Boston as the most expensive city.
