I'd like to see the below chart also fleshed out with additional stats like average income, and other income, remuneration and benefits stats to get a fuller picture (not knowing whether that would favor or argue against RTW).

As noted, there are some non-RTW state up in the top tiers and would argue that many of these states have much higher living standards too. Also, as noted, there are some RTW states scrapping the bottom here and some of those are also at the bottom in regards to living standards.

Yeah, there might be lower unemployment, but they may also be getting low wages with schitty benefits and terrible working conditions.

Again, a bit more data needed to draw any real conclusions one way or the other.
