Based on data from WalletHub, Statista charted the cities with the busiest workers in America. In order to come up with the results, they took into account factors directly related to employment -- average workweek hours, employment rate, share of workers leaving vacation time unused, share of engaged ("committed") workers, and idle youth (residents aged 16-24 who are neither students nor employed) -- and indirect factors including commute, leisure and volunteer hours, and how many workers have multiple jobs.

Mike Olszanski, outreach coordinator in the department of labor studies at Indiana University, offered the following commentary on WalletHub: "Productivity, which is the number of person-hours necessary to produce a unit of product, is up 243 percent since 1948. If workers shared equitably in this huge increase in our efficiency, we should either be working half as many hours, or our real wages should be doubled, or some combination of higher wages and shorter hours."
