Florida because you'll find a job but your salary won't be that much lower than in it would be California BUT California's housing costs are MUCH higher.

California for number of opportunities and absolute wages, but wages relative to cost of living is categorically better in Florida.

Overall you'll do better in California due to wages and overall demand not to mention numbers not perception, are probably more relevant. You'll pay 10% more in taxes on average in CA but salaries tend 15%-20% higher on average so clearly your net is higher in CA versus FL.

You left out one important cost: housing.

Or do what I did—I was in IT (though not an engineer) and relocated with my job and CA salary to FL. Best of both worlds.
