Have you seen a spike in your personal income in the past year?
According to a Pew Research Center study, Maine is ranked in the top 10 among U.S. states with sharp gains in personal income.
The BDN says, “Multiple rounds of relief programs boosted personal income to record highs in more than half of U.S. states, and earnings edged up in most states.”
The personal income in the state rose 18.2 percent in the first three months of 2021, compared to the same time last year. The numbers are adjusted for inflation.
