Florida has many great things to offer but being a working mom isn't one of them.

At least, that's what a study from WalletHub found.

The site said it looked at 15 key metrics to come up with the best and worst states (and the District of Columbia) for mothers who work.

According to WalletHub the best 10 states are:

1    Vermont     
2    Minnesota     
3    Massachusetts     
4    District of Columbia     
5    Connecticut     
6    Rhode Island     
7    Maine     
8    New Jersey     
9    Delaware     
10   New York

And the worst 10 are: 

42    Texas     
43    Wyoming     
44    Georgia     
45    West Virginia     
46    Mississippi     
47    South Carolina     
48    Nevada     
49    Alabama     
50    Louisiana     
51    Idaho

As for Florida? WalletHub ranks it 26th. It says the Sunshine State ranks 20th when it comes to child care, 7th for professional opportunities and 42nd in work-life balance.
