Montana is rich in many ways, but admittedly, the job market can be tough. The Treasure State is ranked 38th out of 50 in terms of average income. These communities have a lot to offer, including some wonderful people and beautiful scenery… but according to data from Roadsnacks.com, statistically they’re the 10 poorest.

Of course, none of this reflects poorly on the people who live in these cities and towns. Perhaps the 2017 statistics will show a difference. But for richer or for poorer, Montana is still the best state of them all.
