What states treat workers best in your opinion, in terms of paying them fairly, protection against discrimination/firing, take employer abuse seriously, and where labor generally has more power?

States up north that are usually run by democrats have more union rights, more workforce protection, and higher wages. Though many northern states are in bad economic shape and have poor business climates. While many southern states are completely opposite of everything I just said. I'm not sure if everything I said is true but this is what I see in my own eyes.

Is New England generally good for workers? You'd think the Pacific Northwest would be, but I've found working here and from what other people have said that abusive and overbearing employers generally act with impunity here. It seems like a good place to be a tipped worker though since you will get paid at least minimum, though it seems like businesses here are stingy in handing out hours.

What kind of jobs and work environment are you looking for? No state is going to be one size fits all for careers. Company/corporate politics are just as relevant as state politics in this scenario.

I guess I mostly mean towards lower-wage (ie less than $15/hr) workers, but really just in general which states are less likely to blindly champion employers no matter what.
