Austin might be the fabled home to the hippies and slackers, but a recent study by a personal finance website placed the Texas capital in the top 20 of “2017’s Hardest-Working Cities in America.”
The WalletHub study ranked Austin No. 17 on the list, which was topped by Anchorage, Alaska. Austin fell short of industrious Plano (No. 2), Irving (No.5) and even Corpus Christi (No. 8), but was well ahead of San Antonio (No. 44) and Lubbock (No. 93).
(Coming in last place among the 116 largest cities was Burlington, Vermont.)
A similar WalletHub study placed Austin at No. 22 on a list of The Best Cities for Jobs. Unsurprisingly, Detroit came in last in the study.
