17 Worst States for Working Moms: Is Yours on the List?

by Judy Dutton

Working moms have it rough-and a new report reveals just how rough by highlighting the worst states for working mothers. In their third annual review of state laws for working parents, the survey "Expecting Better" by the National Partnership for Women & Families doled out grades for each state, and let's just say most won't make the honor roll anytime soon.

Only one state, California, fell in the "A" range with an A-. I was somewhat happy to see that my own state, New York, was one of nine states that earned a B.

But 17 states got Fs due to their complete disregard for parents' desire to balance work and family. Curious if your state flunked and why?

Here are the 17 losers ...

Did your state make the "worst" list?

I'm in CA and no surprise it ranks high. I have a few bosses who are working women and most are mothers. Two have stay at home husbands also. I hope to be there one day.
