Irving-Las Colinas Among The Hardest Working Cities In The U.S., Study Says

North Texans might need a vacation.

Several North Texas cities were named among the hardest-working in the country by personal finance website WalletHub, published in recognition of Employee Appreciation Day coming up on March 4.

Irving came in at No. 5, for the second year in a row, while these other North Texas cities also appeared on the list:

  • Plano (No. 9)
  • Dallas (No. 10)
  • Fort Worth (No. 16)
  • Arlington (No. 20)
  • Garland (No. 21)

To determine the rankings, WalletHub compared the 116 largest cities in the U.S. across 11 key measures, including average hours worked per week, employment rate, number of workers with multiple jobs, percent of workers leaving vacation time unused and average commute.

Analysts gathered data from the U.S. Census Bureau, Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Travel Association, Gallup, Social Science Research Council and Corporation for National & Community Service.
