A new study ranks Buffalo very low on the list of hard-working cities in America for 2023. When it comes to working, even though Americans get stereotyped as lazy, we put in more work hours than many other countries. According to WalletHub,
Many Americans view hard work as the path to achieving the American Dream. We work so hard, in fact, that we put in more hours at our jobs than several other industrialized countries. The average U.S. worker puts in 1,791 hours per year – 184 hours more than the average in Japan, 294 more than the U.K. and 442 more than Germany.
New York State Lands At Bottom Of Hardest-Working States List
Back in August WalletHub released a list of the hardest-working states and New York ranked low.
Topping the list of hardest-working states in North Dakota. I'm going to be a hater for a second, but it seems like most of the states in the top 5 are the most BORING states in America.
4. South Dakota
New York Is #48 On The List Of Hardest-Working States
The only states where people are lazier than New Yorkers are:
49. Rhode Island
50. New Mexico
When it comes to employment rate New York ranked #48 and for annual volunteer hours per resident, we ranked #49.
How Lazy Is Buffalo, NY?
Welp, we're right there with the state when it comes to ranking really low on the list of hard-working cities. WalletHub compared the 116 largest cities in America across 11 key metrics, looking at things like the employment rate to average weekly work hours to the share of workers with multiple jobs.
According to the study, the hardest working city in America is...
#1 San Francisco, CA
Buffalo is pitifully low on the list. Like next to last.
