Philadelphia Ranks in 2018’s Top 15 Hardest-Working Cities in America

Philadelphia has always had a reputation of being a blue collar town.  Our sports starts are blue collar and our movie hero’s are even blue collar so it’s no wonder that Philadelphia has recently ranked as one of the hardest working cities in the U.S. With March 2 being Employee Appreciation Day and Americans outworking many of their foreign peers by hundreds of extra hours per year, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on  2018’s Hardest-Working Cities in America.

Philadelphia officially came in 14th on the list.  San Francisco took the top position followed by Fremong, CA. Jersey City, NJ, Washington D.C, and New York rounding out the top 5.

In order to determine where Americans work the hardest, WalletHub compared the 116 largest cities across nine key metrics. The data set ranges from employment rate to average hours worked per week to share of workers with multiple jobs.

How Hard Does Philadelphia Work? (1=Best, 58=Avg.)

  • 6th – Avg. Workweek Hours
