Labor Day is as good a time as any to see how the fifty states rank in terms of which state workers are said to be harder workers, or less so.
The source of the data is Wallet Hub. Here are some of the main metrics they used to determine their ranking.
Using those metrics above, here are the 50 states ranking, per Wallet Hub, from hardest working at the top, to the least hard working at the bottom.
Wallet Hub also says, “Americans are hard workers, putting in an average of 1,783 hours per year, according to the World Economic Forum. That’s about 300 hours per year more than Germans work, but about 450 less than Mexicans do.
Even when given the chance to not work as hard, many Americans won’t. In fact, 52% of Americans didn’t use all of their available vacation days in 2017. However, while it may seem as if workers are happily pursuing the American Dream, many individuals’ reasons for working hard may not be so pleasant. Some fear that if they take time off they will look less dedicated to the job than other employees, risking a layoff. Others worry about falling behind on their work or worry that the normal workflow will not be able to function without them.”
The Daily Business News on MHProNews suggests is not endorsing the study or methodology. Our team knows professionals in some supposedly low-ranking states that are hard workers by anyone’s definition. But this report is worth spotlighting, because it is one that mainstream media is touting once again this year. WalletHub is a personal finance website.
MHProNews suggests you compare the Wallet Hub chart with the top states in manufactured housing production, as a more industry-focused reference.
As Labor Day winds down, it’s worth mentioning that Bloomberg reports more Americans are eating steak this year for the holiday. It’s one of several signs that the economy and wallets for millions have improved in the 19 months since President Donald J. Trump was sworn into office, with a pro-worker, pro-business agenda.
