LOS ANGELES - The hardest-working city in America turns out to be one of the most expensive cities in the world, so we can't say we're surprised.
Actually, San Francisco was the only California city to make the top 20.
To get the results, WalletHub compared over 100 of the largest cities across 11 key metrics including employment rate and average hours worked per week to share of workers with multiple jobs. WalletHub noted that direct work factors include the share of homes with no working adults and the share of workers who leave unused vacation time. Indirect factors included average commute times, the share of workers with multiple jobs and annual volunteer hours.
According to the report, the hardest-working cities are:
- San Francisco, Calif.
- Anchorage, Alaska
- Irving, Texas
- Virginia Beach, Va.
- Washington, D.C.
Cities that worked the least are:
- Burlington, Vt.
- Detroit, Mich.
- Buffalo, N.Y.
- Bridgeport, Conn.
