Could the state you live in contribute to how successful you'll be as a working mom?
WalletHub recently released an in-depth report trying to answer just that. Taking into account 13 key metrics, including childcare costs, professional opportunities, and the male/female pay gap, they've ranked all 50 states from best (Vermont) to worst (Nevada).
In the summary, the author noted, "Workplace inequality is important not only in the spirit of a merit-based economy but also for deeply ingrained social reasons. For instance, should women have to choose between career and family?
The real question, however, is what we’re doing about this fundamental problem. Progress appears to be taking shape at different rates across the nation. Not only do parental leave policies and other legal-support systems vary by state, but the quality of infrastructure — from cost-effective day care to public schools — is also far from uniform as well."
