Working Dad

Father's Day is Sunday, when the old man can kicking back and putting his feet up, but on Monday, it'll be back to work. That's why WalletHub wanted to know which states were the best for working dads.

Taking into account factors like salary, work/life balance, health, child care costs, and average length of work days, the site found that Massachusetts tops the list. Nearby Connecticut took second place, while New Jersey, Vermont, and Minnesota rounded out the top five.
