Here are the best—and worst—states for working moms
How does your state stack up when it comes to supporting working moms and dads?
A new report out Wednesday from the Institute for Women’s Policy Research rates the 50 states on a Work & Family Composite Index, which factors in access to paid leave, support for dependent and elder care, cost and quality of child care, and the gender gap in labor force participation for parents of young kids.
The best grade in the report went to New York State, with California coming in at No. 2 and Washington, D.C. at No. 3.
