So, how did Georgia place?
It was No. 37 on the list. Millennials rake in $60,851 a year. In fact, many of the states in the South fell to the bottom of the pack. Young people make less than $60,000 in Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, Florida and Mississippi.
“The South clearly stands out as a lackluster region for millennials in the labor market,” the researchers noted.
However, they said the biggest surprise was the West Coast, which didn’t look much different from the South. They wrote, “This highlights the fact that big tech companies are creating great jobs for a select group of skilled workers, but if making the most money is your primary goal, you have a better chance of succeeding if you move to Nebraska instead of California.”
