Rochester named best city for working women


ROCHESTER, Minn. – A Southern  Minnesota community which is used to getting high honors is getting yet another one.

According to SmartAsset, Rochester is the best place to live for working women in this country. In order to come up with that conclusion, the group looked at many factors including pay, the unemployment rate, and the percentage of women in the workforce. We talked to the Medical Director of Mayo Clinic’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion Dr. Sharonne N. Hayes. She tells us this is a great honor for the city and shows what kind of amazing community they live in. She also points out Mayo Clinic, as the city’s biggest employer, is always trying to work on factors like a wage gap.

Here is the study.
