With Mother's Day coming up this weekend we can't help but think of moms. Women make up almost half of the U.S. workforce, and over 70 percent of women with children under the age of 18 are working mothers. Having the most support possible whether that be salary to female unemployment rate to day-care quality determines which states are the best for working moms. WalletHub looked at all 50 states based on 13 key metrics to determine which ones were best for working moms. Here's what they found.
