For many of us, hard work remains the path to achieving the American Dream. We work so hard, in fact, that we put in more hours at our jobs than several other industrialized countries such as Germany, Japan and the U.K.

But some U.S. cities represent the strong work ethic that helped to build the world’s biggest economy better than others. In order to determine which cities outwork the rest of America, WalletHub’s analysts compared the 116 largest cities across six key metrics. Our data set ranges from “labor-force participation rate” to “average weekly work hours” to “share of workers with multiple jobs.” Read on for our findings, expert insight from a panel of researchers and a full description of our methodology.
