    The Badger State is Minnesota’s eastern neighbor and pharmacists make a couple thousand dollars more than the national average—$124,060. Another good indication is the amount of job openings. Coming in at the tenth place for job openings placed it higher than any other state in our top ten. More job openings means that, obviously, it is easier to get a job and that employers are likely to pay a little more to attract pharmacists. The fact that there are so many job openings drops the location quotient, which means pharmacists may not find a robust peer community.
