Georgia has the least happy employees in the country according to a new survey conducted by select software reviews. The company evaluated each state based on wages, quit rates, commute times, working hours, injuries, paid time off, and state positivity levels.

Georgia scored 29.62 on the survey, dead last in the nation with hefty commute times being the biggest contributor to the low score. Coming in first was Alaska, which had an average work week of 31.3 hours and a well above-average pay rate.

Rhode Island and North Dakota round out the top three. Several southern states scored low including Virginia at 43rd, Alabama at 45th, South Carolina at 46th, Florida at 48th, and Texas at 49th.
