Here's a GREAT example of how to DISTORT STATISTICS kids! Now, the avg STATE GOVT expenditure is correct, but, what's wrong with this picture? Is EVERYTHING else equal?
No? What's different?
1) Alaska has a lot less people than OH
2) Alaska makes a lot more money from taxing oil.
You must be a reporter the way you present a fact to make it LOOK like you're comparing apples to apples.
You completely missed the point. The exact point I was trying to make was that comparing Ohio and Alaska is NOT "apples-to-apples".

This was in response to the previous post that tried to compare prevailing wage between the two states.

Okay, I looked it up. Here are some examples of "prevailing wages" in Ohio:
Tile setters, hard and soft $14.01
Carpet installers $10.34
Carpenters $14.06
Carpenter apprentices $9.66
Drywall installers $12.51
Electricians $18.35
How are you going to get lower than that without going illegal?
This has to be way old. The prevailing wage for drywall hanger right now is 40.43 an hr. I know I work for a big contractor in Columbus Ohio and am working at osu right now.... that is what I'm paid for my straight time then ot is 60.65 hr
