With Mother's Day approaching, one study found that Nevada is among the worst states for working moms.

WalletHub ranks Nevada 49th out of 51 states, including the District of Columbia. Only Louisiana and Alabama ranked below the Silver State. Vermont was ranked as the best state for working moms.

The study looked at women's salary in each state as well as the female unemployment rate and daycare quality.

In addition, WalletHub found that Nevada had some of the highest child care costs in the country. But the daycare quality was found to be in the middle of the pack at 28th.
