Best and Worst States to Work in America 2021

Each year, the Best States to Work Index ranks the US states on compensation and conditions for workers.

Workers in the US face dramatically different conditions based simply on where they live. As the federal government has failed for decades to pass updates in labor laws, it’s fallen to the states to determine wages, conditions, and rights.

The result is an ever-changing crazy patchwork of laws, which have deepened inequality on geographic lines, and left millions of working families struggling to stay afloat.

The 2021 index includes a special ranking of Best States for Working Women.
