Payscale’s Economic Widget

[js] [/js] Payscale offers a number of ¬†economic and employment savvy widgets for inclusion on your website.

Cost of Living Difference Calculator

This is a cost of moving calculator for any two points in the US. It is useful, but as a website provider this is not as attractive at all.
