John Kiernan of the Wallet Hub recently posted a study about women in the American workplace which comprises about half of the employed people. It is not just about equal pay but equal work as well. U.S. President Obama once quipped, “She deserves to have a baby without sacrificing her job. A mother deserves a day off to care for a sick child or sick parent without running into hardship – and you know what, a father does, too.”
So, WalletHub analyzed state and local dynamics across nine metrics in order to identify the Best & Worst States for Working Moms. Their findings include New York as having the best day care system but has one of the highest child care costs, Alabama having the fourth lowest child care costs but ranks high in the worst day care system, and with a conclusion that the Blue States are more friendly to working moms than Red States.
