America’s hardest working cities

Do you work hard? Of course you do.

What about the other people in your department or company? Never mind, don’t answer that.

But what about your city? Do your friends and neighbors work as hard as you do?

In honor of Employee Appreciation Day on March 4, Wallethub has ranked the 116 largest U.S. cities based on factors such as the number of workers with multiple jobs, average weekly work hours and commute time.

According to the site, the nation’s hardest workers are found in Anchorage, AK. The rest of the top 10 are Virginia Beach, VA; Plano, TX; Sioux Falls, SD; Irving, TX; Scottsdale, AZ; San Francisco, CA; Cheyenne, WY; Washington, DC; and Charlotte, NC.

The least-hard-working? Burlington, VT.
