Saturday Stats: San Jose Ranks as the 5th Hardest Working City in America

The Movoto real estate blog has taken a stab at determining which cities are the hardest working. They used seven different criteria in their research: average hours worked per week, unemployment rate, commute time, employed workers per household, hours volunteered per year, lack of sleep, and cost of living. After crunching all of the numbers, San Jose ranked as the 5th hardest working city in the US. SF was right behind us at #6, and NYC came in at #11. You can get more information regarding all of the criteria by going to the blog post, and the full list is below:
