WORST PLACE TO RAISE A FAMILY is more often than not in a so-called “right-to-work (for less)” state, a new study shows. In the worst half of all states, 19 of 25 are RTW states (shown in yellow). At #24, Missouri is right in the middle of all states. – WalletHub graphic
76% of the worst half of all states are RTW

In looking at intangibles that impact the lives of you and your family, a new study ranking states based on the “Worst to Best” states to raise a family paints a dramatic picture of how the phony “right-to-work (for less)” impacts one’s quality of living.
Based on the “worst” and “best” half of all states (25), using 42 relevant metrics in five vital areas that impact quality of life, the survey shows:
• RTW – 19 of the worst 25 states – 76 percent – are RTW states, considered to be the “worst” states in which to raise a family.
• WITHOUT RTW – only six of the worst 25 states – 24 percent – with NO RTW law are in the “worst” half of all states in which to raise a family.
• WITHOUT RTW – 17 of the best 25 states – 68 percent – with NO RTW law are considered to be the “best” states in which to raise a family.
• RTW- only eight of the best 25 states – 32 percent – are RTW states ranking in the “best” category to raise a family.
To make this comparison, 42 relevant metrics were used in each of five key areas: Health and Safety, Education and Child Care, Affordability, Socio-economics and Family Fun.
The survey was conducted as part of the ongoing research efforts of WalletHub , a financial services site based in Washington, DC. that also offers insights on a diverse variety of community of subjects. Its data and charts are frequently referenced in news articles appearing in Bloomberg News, The Wall Street Journal, Fox News, USA Today, Forbes, Yahoo and The New York Times.
This is just one of many examples of the negative impact the phony RTW has had on working families in states that have imposed this destructive anti-union, anti-worker law.
