Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Minnesota and Hawaii are the top 5 for unemployment compensation.

All have a Democratic majority, and all have higher taxes. In the article the Bottom 5 mentioned are Republican majority and have low or zero state taxes.

I wonder how all of the unemployed in Florida who ran away from high taxes in NJ, NY, etc. feel about their maximum $275 a week.
