Americans pride themselves in being hardworking people. We work hard, we play hard. But which American cities stand a cut above the rest in rolling up their sleeves and getting the job done?

The finance website Wallethub calculated the work ethic of American cities by looking at a bunch of data, including employment rate, length of the average workweek, unused vacation days, and how many people work multiple jobs.

Wallethub rated cities on a 100-point scale, and the highest-ranking city (which you’ll see at the bottom) scored a 79.
