Turn up the bluegrass music, because you’ll need it to tune out the fact that project management professionals earn below-average wages in Kentucky. The only bright spots are in the Cincinnati-Middletown region, where people commute out of state. In this area, industrial production managers make over $93,000 annually, and natural sciences managers earn over $118,000 per year, both above U.S. median salary figures. Computer and information systems managers do not make competitive wages, making only 61% of the U.S. median earnings in Huntington-Ashland and Elizabethtown.
