New York State named one of the least hardworking states

New York State just received a title we shouldn’t be proud of. New York has just been ranked among the hardest working states in the United States.

Americans are hard workers. According to WalletHub, the United States puts in an average of 1,767 hours a year of hard work. This time is confirmed by the World Economic Forum.

This is 435 hours of work per year more than the Germans, but 357 less than the Mexicans.”

The American dream has always been defined as working hard and being rewarded for all that hard work. So how can you even begin to determine which states are working hard and which states aren’t?

To determine where Americans work the most, WalletHub compared the 50 states across 10 key factors. By doing so, they were able to determine the hardest working states and the less hard working states. This is how New York came in at 48th out of 50 states for manual workers.

Factors ranged from the average number of hours worked per week to the share of workers with multiple jobs to the annual volunteer hours per resident. Again, New York beat only two other states, West Virginia and New Mexico. Really, that seems a little off for our state as a whole.

New York State also ranked 47th for lowest employment rate and 49th for lowest annual volunteer hours per capita.

So who was among the hardest working states? These included Alaska at number one, North Dakota at number two, and Nebraska at the number tree. You can read the full data breakdown here.
