Little tiny Ware, a short drive from Springfield, makes the top of this list mainly due to its poor economic situation. Residents here make some of the lowest salaries in the state.
The population has dropped here more than 6%, and the cost of living for some reason is a lot higher than it should be. Which means you’re overpaying to live in…Ware.
