Best and Worst States to Work in America - 2020

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

In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has left millions of working families struggling to stay afloat. As the federal government has failed to advance labor laws that would help, some states have stepped up to make vital improvements in wages and conditions.

This index ranks all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia.
