Okay, Dallas-Fort Worth. Some of us must be exhausted. A new ranking shows four cities in the DFW area are among the 20 hardest-working cities in the country.

In honor of Employee Appreciation Day on March 2, personal finance website WalletHub crunched the numbers to come up with 2018’s Hardest-Working Cities in America. Among the factors that WalletHub compared for the country’s 116 largest cities are employment rate, average hours worked per week, and share of workers with two or more jobs.

Here’s how cities in the DFW area stacked up in the top 20:

  • Garland — No. 13
  • Plano — No. 17 
  • Arlington — No. 18
  • Fort Worth — No. 20

Sorry, Big D. You didn’t want make top 20 but, instead, landed at No. 23. Perhaps you need to put in some more time at the office?

But don’t despair too much, Big D. After all, you’re ahead of Austin (No. 26), Houston (No. 33), Irving (No. 34), and San Antonio (No. 35) in the WalletHub ranking.

As for the hard-working folks in Garland, Plano, Arlington, and Fort Worth, it might be time to book a vacation (or at least a day at the spa).

No. 1 in WalletHub’s ranking is San Francisco. Maybe the folks in the City by the Bay work so freakin’ hard because it costs so freakin’ much to live there.
