New Jersey - high salaries and insane benefits (at the expense of very high local property taxes)

60K is hardly insane considering the responsibility and societal impact for what a teacher does or in a state where the average office worker makes 70K-80K.

Where do you get 60K from? Some districts in NJ teachers make above 100K.

And BTW, I don't know what you're expecting but 60K is damn fine for a teacher's salary.

60K is the NJ state average. I would hope after 15-20 years that teachers in districts like Bergen County for instance would make 100K given the cost of living there and certainly isn't the princely sum in that type of location. 60K is adequate and certainly not "damn fine" for a teacher, which sounds as if you're dismissing the profession's importance and what it takes to be one.

New Jersey is also a market where it is difficult to find a job.

What do you mean by best? Easy to find employment? Or strong unions and high value on education? You can find jobs pretty easily in states like Arizona, Texas, Nevada, among some others. But they aren't known to have the best conditions for teaching. On the other hand, states like Massachusetts have high requirements for teachers. MA, among other states, have strong support for teachers which result in high pay, and high quality education and teachers. But it is harder to find jobs in these states.
