The 10 States Where People Like Their Jobs The Most

Bad news for my fellow East Coasters: You might want to bag your bags and head West, because evidently, if you do, you'll be happier with your job.

At least that's according to a study, conducted by social technology company Brandwatch and jobs site Monster, which analyzed over 1.1 million tweets on career sentiment from March 2014 to March 2015 to find out how people felt about their jobs nationwide.

A whopping 8 out of the top 10 states that love their jobs the most are in the Western half of the country (with the exception of Arkansas and Maine) (think software development, engineering and designing), while the 10 states that hate their job the most took were all from the East Coast (more finance and health care).

Maybe we just complain more on this side of the country? Who knows.

Anyway, here are the top 10 job-loving states:

  1. Hawaii
  2. Utah
  3. Oregon
  4. California
  5. Washington
  6. Minnesota
  7. Nevada
  8. Maine
  9. Arkansas
  10. Idaho

And the bottom 10:

  1. Florida
  2. West Virginia
  3. Delaware
  4. Virginia
  5. Ohio
  6. New Jersey
  7. Pennsylvania
  8. Rhode Island
  9. Louisiana
  10. Maryland
