UNDATED - With Mother’s Day around the corner and more than 70 percent of moms with young children working today, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on 2018’s Best & Worst States for Working Moms.

In order to help ease the burden on “Women Who Work,” particularly moms, WalletHub compared the attractiveness of each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia for a working mother based on 15 key metrics. The data set ranges from median women’s salary to female unemployment rate to day-care quality.
