We here in Detroit pride ourselves on being gritty, hard workers.

That said, this new study from WalletHub is downright insulting!

WalletHub recently compared the 116 largest cities across 11 key metrics to determine the hardest-working cities in America. They date set ranges from the employment rate to average weekly work hours to the share of workers with multiple jobs.

According to the study, Detroit is at the very bottom of the list. Yes, the actually last slot. This can’t be true!

Anchorage, Alaska, ranked No. 1 on the tally.

Sorry, WalletHub, but we beg to differ! Anyone who knows a true Detroiter knows we’re a hard-working bunch.
