REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – How much is $100 worth in your state?

According to a new report using government data, it’s not worth as much if you live in one of the states with high concentrations of Filipinos.

The nonprofit group Tax Foundation found that $100 is worth the least in the District of Columbia, Hawaii, New York, New Jersey, and California.

In California $100 is worth just $88.57.

If you want to get more bang for your buck, try going to Mississippi and Arkansas. In Mississippi $100 is actually worth $115.74.

Does $100 go a long way where you live?

    If all of you Filipinos like to have $100.00 worth $100.00 stay like your back in the Philippines act poor, you don’t have to buy a car or a nice house to show off to other Filipinos, you get money but don’t have anything but “BILLS.” I see a lot of Filipinos get new big house with about 3 family living all together in the same house. They buy nice car but have hard time paying for the car a month. And can’t eat right but got nice things to show-off. The $100 can go a long ways if you don’t have a lot of “BILLS TO PAY.”
