Hardest-Working States in the U.S.

Think you work hard? Well, how does that compare with your counterparts across the nation?

WalletHub wanted to find out the hardest-working states in America, so the personal-finance company performed some research and produced its report, along with videos to create a ranking.

By comparing 50 states across 10 metrics, from average work hours per week to the number of volunteers per capita, here’s the findings:

Top 10 Hardest-Working States:

  1. Alaska
  2. North Dakota
  3. Wyoming
  4. South Dakota
  5. Nebraska
  6. New Hampshire
  7. Texas
  8. Colorado
  9. Virginia
  10. Kansas

Surprised the big ones like New York aren’t on the list? We are, too. Here’s a few additional interesting facts:

  • New York does have the longest average commute time at 32.6 minutes.
  • Idaho has the highest number of workers not capitalizing on paid-time-off (78%). Maine has the lowest at 38%.
  • Alaska has the most worked hours per week at 42
