How Does Louisiana Rank When it Comes to Taking Care of Working Dads?
With Father's Day upon us, it's natural to have dear ole' dad on the brain. Being a parent is tough... especially for working parents. So, how does Louisiana stack up when it comes to taking care of working dads?
Louisiana ranked as the WORST state for working dads in 2022 according to WalletHub.com. How did we do for 2023?
The answer is not good. We did better, but Louisiana still ranks 47th in the country when it comes to taking care of our working dads.
WalletHub.com did the legwork and found that things aren't easy for working dads in the Bayou state. It turns out that after looking at a number of different factors, Louisiana is falling short of the mark when it comes to key factors like parental leave, life expectancy, physical fitness, and the quality of our school system.
Wallethub.com also points out that Louisiana has a ton of room to improve when it comes to the categories of Work-Life Balance, Child Care, and General Health. Onward and upward Louisiana, onward and upward! But seriously, since being a working dad in Louisiana isn't all sunshine and roses, you should probably spoil him this Sunday for Father's Day!
