2. North Dakota
Those booming oil fields appear to have North Dakotans working overtime, clocking the second-highest average hours per workweek. However, they apparently take the proverb about “all work and no play” seriously, since residents also spent the third-highest amount of time on leisure each day. Youths take a page from their elders, with residents ages 16-24 among the least idle in the U.S., the report said. All that hard work gives North Dakota the second-highest employment rate of all the states.
