WalletHub recently released updated rankings for 2020’s Best & Worst States for Working Dads and South Carolina ranked as the 7th worst in the country.

In order to help dads balance their dual role as parent and provider, WalletHub compared the 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia across 23 key indicators of friendliness toward working dads. The data set ranges from average length of work day for males to child-care costs to share of men in good or better health.

  • 44th – Male Uninsured Rate

    Not surprising being a father in SC…we are under represented in the court systems by corrupt judges who regardless of evidence for custody its thrown out and disregarded…judges quick to lock you up when behind on payments ie..via his court order…but non enforcement of visitation to said same court order..ex spouse free to roam with wanton abandon destroying all Father child relationships which the judges are a party too. Yet suffering no consequences for the lopsided enforcement of his order this is systemic within the court systems regardless of color..and is cause for greater incarceration among fathers compounding their efforts to be productive and find meaningful employment…
