Does it still count as hard work if you're working from home with Netflix on in the background all day? Wicker and Wilde think it does....LOL 

WalletHub just released its annual list of the hardest-working states in America.  And North Dakota took the top spot again.

They look at things like work hours, employment rates, unused vacation days, how many people have more than one job, and how much we volunteer in our spare time.

The ten hardest-working states this year are:  North Dakota . . . Alaska . . . Wyoming . . . Texas . . . Nebraska . . . Oklahoma . . . Colorado . . . Virginia . . . Maryland . . . and Hawaii. Yay!  We're number 8! Now, that being said, we feel we should remind you that it is important to take vacation.  

According to the results, the ten states with the most SLACKERS are:  West Virginia . . . New Mexico . . . Rhode Island . . . Michigan . . . Ohio . . . Connecticut . . . New York . . . Oregon . . . Mississippi . . . and Arizona.

Not only that but overall, Americans work harder than people in most countries though . . . an average of 1,779 hours a year.  (That's higher than Germany, France, the U.K., Japan, Italy, and Canada.  Mexico works the most hours at 2,137 a year.)

So Virginia is for lovers and hard workers...but let's remember to work smarter, too...
