SAN ANTONIO – The city of San Antonio isn’t just known as a destination for exceptional food options or the Alamo.

According to a new report from WalletHub, the Alamo City took the 53rd spot out of the 116 most hardworking cities in the nation.

WalletHub compared some of the most-populated cities in the nation for the report based on two main elements: “Direct Work Factors” and “Indirect Work Factors.”

Report: San Antonio is one of the most unhealthy cities in the U.S.

Some of the “Direct Work Factors” include the number of average workweek hours, employment rates, the share of households where no adults work, the share of workers not using their vacation time and more.

The “Indirect Work Factors” include average commute times, the number of workers with multiple jobs, the average amount of leisure time spent per day, and other contributing elements.
