Alaska residents, followed by North Dakota and Nebraska, are one of the hardest working peoples in the United States. Below the list are New York, West Virginia and lastly New Mexico, according to a study by WaltHub.

“But you can work hard without overdoing it. Hard work is the key to success, people in some states understand this better than others,” said WalletHub.

To determine where Americans work hard Compare 50 states in 10 key indicators. Starting with the average working hours per week, the percentage of employees working in multiple jobs, up to the number of individual volunteer hours.

The top ten hard workers include residents South Dakota, Texas and Wyoming. Others at the bottom of the ladder are New Jersey, Illinois and Connecticut. California is slightly higher, ranking 39th.


Americans work hard, according to the World Economic Forum. By 2021, they will have devoted an average of 1,767 hours to work. This is 435 more hours per year than the work of the Germans, but 357 less than in Mexico.

“Even if they had the opportunity not to work hard, many Americans would not do it. They only use half the holidays in a typical year, but during the Govt-19 epidemics, they lost more than usual,” Walthap stressed.

Aside from the epidemic, he explained that there are many reasons for employees to postpone pay hours until later. Some people fear that if they go on vacation, they will appear to be less involved in the company than others and will be laid off. Still others worry about regression or fear that normal workflow would not work without them.

The United States is also one of the few developed countries that does not have legal obligations to provide holidays and other days off work and holidays. This is especially true for small businesses, the majority in the United States.

Ian Marinescu, a professor at the School of Social Policy & Training at the University of Pennsylvania, quoted WaltHub as estimating that U.S. wages will rise as long as the number of applicants is less than the number of vacancies.

“After a while, companies will adjust and wages will be higher, but not higher. With the Delta option, there is a risk that job growth will slow significantly, and then wage increases will stop,” Marinescu predicted.
