If you needed another reason as to why working from is beneficial on all fronts, here you go. WalletHub‘s latest study ranks New Jersey as the best state for working from home.
The personal finance website compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 12 key metrics including average home square footage, internet access, and more. Together, these metrics show how feasible working from home is in terms of cost, comfort and safety.
“New Jersey is the best state for working from home due in part to the fact that the state provides a comfortable and affordable environment for working remotely, with nearly 97 percent of households having internet speeds above 25Mbps. In addition, New Jersey has the second best access to low-priced internet plans in the country” said Jill Gonzalez, WalletHub analyst in a press release. “Plus, New Jersey has one of the highest percentages of people who could potentially work from home, so many workers can take advantage of these good remote work conditions.”
