The last post on this should have been challenged. While it was true it has little bearing in the end. Being affected by how many folks you pack into a house, shared expenses in other ways etc., really play more into the whole bang for the buck thing. Cut your expenses, and whatever it is that you bring in goes a bit farther. Michigan still has higher cost of living than other states, and particularly as compared to states with freedom to work laws.
I am not sure about all of the whys, but it is consistent when averaged. People in Right-to-Work states have more coin, bread, bucks, capital, cash, scratch, chips, coin, coinage, dough, greenbacks, or gravy when the day is done. By nearly $2,000 average.

Per recent census data:
