Shoutout to all the dads with this one. The papa dukes of the world often don't get enough recognition and love.

They work tirelessly to provide for their families, especially their children.

According to a Wallet Hub study, "Back in 1960, 75% of American families relied on a single income, that of the dad, who spent much of his week at work while mom stayed home with the kids. Now, 71.1% of married mothers work, and while that’s still quite a bit lower than the 93.7% of married fathers who do, the gap is closing."

Working dads need support. This often comes from powers bigger than them or their family. Instead, their support comes from factors out of their control, like their state legislation, company policies, etc.

WalletHub compared the 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia across 23 key indicators of friendliness toward working fathers. The data set ranges from the average length of the work day for men to childcare costs and the share of men in good or better health.
