If you’re wondering, “How much do I need to be rich?” the answer depends on where you live. To be rich in America — or in the 80th percentile of household incomes — you need to earn $103,405, which is significantly less than the amount many Americans think they need to be “rich.” However, in some states, you need to earn even less than that to be among the top earners.
For this study, “rich” is defined as an income in the 80th percentile of households, and determined the states where that amount was less than $100,000. The study also took into consideration states where top-tier homes were affordable. Keep reading to see where you can live a rich life while earning less than $100,000.

Florida is a beautiful state, but right to work, pay cheap, New Jersey is the garden state, but when it comes to winter, it’s not nice at all. The cost of living is about average, but the taxes is the highest in the country for the smallest state even than New York, next door even thow New York pays highest than New Jersey , I do not understand that at all. Now back to Florida, the right to work state should be illiminated, because we are now in the 21st, century, not in the 70’s no more. School bus drivers have a big responsibility with children of all ages, it’s more stressful than been a commuter bus driver, our salaries for them is too low for this type of responsibility, how are they going to afford a low income home, vergina has lifted there wright to work state ban and unionise the state so people can earn a decent salary of approximately $15.00/ hour starting, why not Florida you have to do something to help us, we are transporting your future generation to and from school’s safely for you.
