2016’s Best & Worst States for Working Moms
I think what makes me shake my head the most is the Southern States, you know, the ones that love their ladies..and all that..are on the BOTTOM of the list! So Southern States may love their ladies but they do not pay them the same wages as their male counterpart in the same job. Love me a little less please but pay me equally so I can support my family has to be the battle cry in these states!
According to a recent study on the 2016’s Best & Worst States for Working Moms by WalletHub, their findings really aren’t that surprising.
Women today comprise nearly half of the American workforce, and solo moms with young children are forced to work at a higher rate than their married counterparts. Yet women still earn only $0.79 for every dollar that men make and have far less upward mobility, as evidenced by the fact that only 4 percent of S&P 500 companies’ chief executives are female. Even the new crop of high-profile female CEOs seems to be drastically underpaid compared with their male peers.
Hover over your state to see where it ranks.
