246

With Americans working an average of almost 1,800 hours per year prior to the COVID-19 pandemic but fewer people having jobs this year, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on 2020’s Hardest-Working States in America.

In order to determine where Americans work the hardest, WalletHub compared the 50 states across ten key metrics. The data set ranges from average workweek hours to share of workers with multiple jobs to annual volunteer hours per resident.

South Carolina ranked #20 and North Carolina ranked #21 on the list.
