New Hampshire Ranks as One of the Hardest-Working States in America
Work stinks. It's something we all need to do. I mean, those bills aren't going to pay themselves.
Even though many of us don't want to work or wish we worked less, many Americans go above and beyond for their employer.
"Use it or lose it" is the expression, right? Well, the majority of Americans apparently chose to leave it.
And this bizarre stat had me wondering the same thing WalletHub set out to achieve: what state is the hardest-working state in America?
"To determine where Americans work the hardest, WalletHub compared the 50 states across 10 key indicators," according to the WalletHub research. They range from average workweek hours to share of workers with multiple jobs to annual volunteer hours per resident."
I'm not sure if I am surprised or not, but the hardest-working state in the USA is North Dakota.
The first New England state represented as the hardest-working state was New Hampshire.
The Granite State technically came in at 15th place overall.

The next New England state was Maine, claiming the 25th spot.
Vermont was listed as 38th.
Massachusetts was directly after Vermont at 39th.
And Connecticut came in the bottom five, owning the 46th spot.
