Best States for Working Moms: Hawaii Ranks 31st
By News Release @ 3:39 PM :: 2903 Views :: Hawaii Statistics

From Wallet Hub May 5, 2015

With Mothers Day less than a week away and women making up roughly half of the American labor force, the leading personal finance social network WalletHub conducted an in-depth analysis of 2015’s Best & Worst States for Working Moms.

In order to help ease the burden on an underappreciated segment of the population, WalletHub analyzed the attractiveness of each of the 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia to a working mother. We did so using 12 key metrics such as median women’s salary, female unemployment rate and day care quality rankings.

Hawaii Ranks 31st -- 48th for 'Child Care' / 6th for 'Professional Opportunities' / 33rd for 'Work-Life Balance'
