Georgians Employees Among Hardest-Working in Nation
On Labor Day, we paid tribute to American workers, who according to World Economic Forum put in an average of nearly 1800 hours on the clock per year. That’s 442 hours more a year more than Germans, but 337 fewer than Mexicans. And Georgia workers work harder than most others in the nation according to a recent study from the personal finance website WalletHub. Analysts studied multiple factors in compiling the list ranging from direct factors such as the length of the work week, and the number of workers with multiple jobs. The study also considered indirect factors such as commute time, volunteer hours, and the amount of daily leisure time.
Analyst Jill Gonzalez says American workers left more than 4.5 days of vacation time on the table in 2021.
