WalletHub is out with its list of the hardest working states in America. The survey shows that the average American works approximately 1,800 hours per year and 52 percent do not take all the vacation time available to them.
So what was used to determine the states with the hardest working populations? Researchers took into account average workweek hours to shares of workers with multiple jobs and annual volunteer hours per resident.
The 10 Hardest-Working States in America: Alaska, North Dakota, Wyoming, South Dakota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Texas, Colorado, Virginia, and Kansas. ▪ Alaska had the longest hours worked per week, 42, which is ten percent longer than in Utah, the state with the shortest work week at 37 hours. ▪
Idaho has the largest share of workers who did not use all their allotted vacation time. ▪ South Dakota has the highest share of workers with multiple jobs.
The states with the least productive workforce include: Michigan, Rhode Island, West Virginia, New Mexico Oregon, Ohio, Nevada, Kentucky, Pennsylvania and Alabama. If you live in one of the above states there’s a pretty good chance you will disagree with these findings unless you’re on vacation and did not have time to read the report.
