Delaware Tops US States for Working at Home
For the millions of Americans who are lucky enough to still be employed amid the COVID-19 pandemic, working at home, for many, has become the new normal.
As you read this in your comfy pants, with yesterday's hair clip in, it might be surprising to consider that just 25% of all workers in the U.S. worked from home on the regular prior to the crisis -- and just 29% were even allowed to do so.
The financial site Wallethub crunched some numbers like cybersecurity, cost of homes and internet connectivity cost, and determined if you're going to work from home, Delaware's the best place to do so.
Granted it's a non-scientific study, but worth noting, too, that Wallethub found Washington State was the second state most conducive to working from home. New Hampshire, Colorado, and Georgia round out the top five.
And dead last in the company's ranking, at 51 -- the data counted Washington D.C. as well -- is Alaska, for the second year in a row.
