Idaho Worst in U.S. for ‘Working Moms’
Welp, we can't win them all, can we? I mean usually, Idaho is on the top of the charts when it comes to quality of life, opportunities in the job market, but apparently not so much when it comes to being good to "working mothers'. According to WalletHub, "more than 70 percent of moms with young children are working", unfortunately, there are some states where mothers in the workforce just have it way harder.
WalletHub analyzed states (and D.C.) across 15 key metrics, to see which were the 'Best and Worst States for Working Moms.' I don't know if you can tell from my vibe, but Idaho didn't fare well. In fact, Idaho came in dead last (51st overall). When it came to quality of daycare, the state came in last....again. Not much better in terms of professional opportunities (48th). The one category that Idaho did OK in was work-life balance (20th).
Where do you need to move to get the best #WorkingMomLife? According to WalletHub, it's Vermont, followed by Minnesota and Massachusetts. Check out the full list HERE.
