Virginia 4th Best State to Make a Living | Fireman Mike | Old Town Post

  
Virginia was deemed the fourth best state in the union to make a living.  Virginia moved up 3 spots from last year’s list.  Job growth in Alexandria and the Northern Virgina area undoubtedly was a factor in making Virginia one of the top states.
