According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), Anchorage, Alaska is the hardest working city in America: clocking in at 40.9 working hours per week.

But coming in second is DFW’s own Plano, Texas: with the average worker putting in 40.5 hours a week.  In third place?  Cheyenne, Wyoming at 40.4 hours of work a week.

Is it just us, or does 40.9 hours of work a week seem low?  Heck, that probably seems like a vacation to most people!

Here’s the full list:

1. Anchorage, Alaska: 40.9 Hours

2. Plano, Texas: 40.5 Hours

3. Cheyenne, Wyoming: 40.4 Hours

4. Virginia Beach, Virginia: 40.2 Hours

5. Irving, Texas: 40.3 Hours

6. Scottsdale, Arizona: 40.2 Hours

7. San Francisco, California: 39.8 Hours

8. Corpus Christi, Texas: 40.5 Hours

9. Washington, DC: 40 Hours

10. Sioux Falls, South Dakota: 38.9 Hours

By the way, Dallas weighed in at #12 with 39.9 Hours.

A couple more interesting stats gathered by the Paris-based policy forum: Americans work around 1,763 hours a year (which is about 25% more than workers in Europe).  However, Mexico works a lot more: 2,255 hours a year!
