WalletHub: Texas fourth most hard-working state

​​​WASHINGTON – Texas is the fourth most hard-working state in the country, according to a WalletHub study.

The Lone Star State ranks third in direct work factors and 30th in indirect work factors.

Direct work factors include average workweek hours, employment rate, share of households with no working adults, share of workers with unused vacation, share of engaged workers, and idle youth rate. Texas has the fourth-highest average workweek hours.​​

Indirect work factors are average commute time, share of workers with multiple jobs, annual volunteer hours per resident, and average leisure time spent daily. 

The top three hardest-working states are North Dakota, Alaska, and Wyoming.​

Earlier this year, WalletHub named Irving, Corpus Christi, Austin, and Plano among the nation’s hardest-working cities.
