Twin Cities Named “Hardest Working Town in America”
MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesotans can feel free to relax a little extra this Labor Day weekend as the Twin Cities have been named the hardest-working metro area in the country.
Minneapolis and St. Paul topped the list of SpareFoot.com's list of "12 Hardest-Working Towns in America."
The list is determined by criteria such as hours worked per person, average total hours worked per week, percent of population that worked between 40 and 52 weeks a year, holders of multiple jobs, and percent of families where all parents worked.
The website says that the residents of the Twin Cities do not necessarily work the longest hours, but they are most likely to have multiple jobs or be part of dual-income families.
Rounding out the rest of the top five are Madison, Wisconsin; Omaha, Nebraska; Des Moines, Iowa; and Denver, Colorado.
