Apparently there are certain areas of America where people work harder than others.

That’s according to a report from WalletHub, which found the U.S. states where people work the hardest in 2022. 

For its report, WalletHub compared all 50 U.S. states based on 10 metrics in two categories: direct work factors and indirect work factors.

HARD INDUSTRIES, HARD WORK, AND BIG OPPORTUNITIES

Some of the direct work factors included average workweek hours, employment rate, share of households where no adults work and share of engaged workers. 

Indirect work factors included average commute time, share of workers with multiple jobs, annual volunteer hours per resident and average leisure time spent per day.

Aside from its overall ranking, WalletHub also found how states did in specific metrics. 

For example, Alaska was found to have the highest average workweek hours, while Utah was found to have the lowest.
