The 5 Worst-Paying States for Electrical Engineers: 2015

Nicknamed "The Treasure State," Montana is rich in mineral reserves. Ironically, this state (known for gold, silver, and sapphires) is also the lowest-paying state in the country when it comes to electrical engineers. According to the latest data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (Occupational Employment and Wages Study from May 2015), Montana's average annual salary for an electrical engineer is around $74,500 compared to nearly $116,000 in California (the highest paying state in this year's rankings).

Keeping in mind that these numbers do not account for cost of living differences, let’s take a look at the rankings in descending order.
