Is Michigan A Good State For Working Dads?
Who is ready for Father's Day??
Typically, fathers get the short end of the stick when it comes to celebration. Whenever it is Mother's Day, there is so much surrounding it, including commercials.
When it is Father's Day, it seems to be rushed or thrown aside as a toss-away holiday.
However, fathers need love too. Plus, the dynamic of a father has changed drastically over the years.
"The contemporary dad no longer fits neatly into the standard of the married breadwinner and disciplinarian. That's been especially true in recent years where many fathers have temporarily or permanently switched to working from home and haven taken on more childcare duties as a result."
WalletHub compiled a list that
"compared the 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia across 23 key indicators of friendliness toward working fathers. Our data set ranges from the average length of the work day for men to child-care costs to the share of men in good or better health."
