Texas Has Some of the ‘Hardest Working Cities in America’
You know what they say, "work hard and play hard."
That phrase is all about balance. If you work hard not only should you play hard, but you should also have the luxury of playing hard. However, not everyone has that balance, and quite frankly some people flat out work harder than others, whether they play or not. That's why WalletHub decided to put together a list of the "Hardest Working Cities in America."
For this list, the financial website looked at various metrics that would affect work ethic in 116 of the largest cities in America. This includes employment rate, weekly work hours, the number of people who work more than one job, and more.
The city that works the hardest of all is San Francisco (CA), followed by Fremont (CA), Jersey City (NJ), Washington DC, and New York (NY). I bet New Yorkers are furious over the number five ranking. At the bottom of the list is Columbia (SC).
As for the Ark-La-Tex, it looks like Texas fared the best on this list. In fact, Garland (TX) garnered a top 15 ranking at number 13. Other Texas cities fell into the top 25 with Plano at number 17, Arlington at number 18, Fort Worth at number 20, and Dallas at number 23.
