The average U.S. worker puts in 1,786 hours per year at their job, which is 106 hours more than the average in Japan, 248 more than the U.K. and 403 more than Germany. So which American cities work the hardest and where do we rank on that list here in the Treasure Valley? Here's the top 10:
- Anchorage, AK
- San Francisco, CA
- Virginia Beach, VA
- Cheyenne, WY
- Irving, TX
- Norfolk, VA
- Corpus Christi, TX
- Washington, D.C.
- Austin, TX
- Plano, TX
Wallethub based these rankings on things like employment rates, average weekly work hours and share of workers with multiple jobs. So Boise didn't make the top ten, but we did make the list. Boise came in at number 56.
Some of our neighbors made the overall list too like Portland (60), Seattle (28), Salt Lake City (23), Billings, MT (19) and Cheyenne, WY who came in at number four!
Just in case you're wondering which city was the least hardest working on the list, it was Detroit, Michigan. In case you're looking for a place to work less, that's your spot.
