Single mothers in Fort Worth have the third largest earnings behind Dallas and Houston areas. However many women’s earnings cannot cover the basic necessities that they need to help their families such as; housing, food, child care and health insurance. The Fort Worth Business Press released an article that discusses some of the concerns and statistics surrounding the financial wellbeing of single mothers in cities across the state of Texas.
The article states that “women in the Fort Worth Area earn almost $11,000 less annually than men.” And that women that live above the poverty line in Texas have a hard time acheiving economic security "as they face low-paying jobs, the high cost of child care, the lack of insurance benefits or the high costs of education and housing.”
