When it comes down to bringing home the bacon, cooking it, and taking care of the kids, no one does it better than “supermom”! But to make that paycheck stretch a little further, definitely depends on which one of the fifty states you live in.
In a recent study by Wallethub, researchers were able to analyze all 50 states and the District of Columbia, based on three key factors: childcare, work-life balance, and professional opportunities, to come up with a list of the best and worst states for working moms.
Based on their research, Wallethub concluded that the top three states that were best for working mothers were Vermont, Minnesota, and New Jersey, while the worst were Nevada, Louisiana, and Alabama. Additionally, the study also concluded that women are losing more than $840 billion each year due to the wage gap and that black women, who are employed full-time, are paid 48-69 cents for every dollar paid to a white male.
