The Number Of Hours Worked
Founder of Ezra, Nick Goldberg, commented:
“Data will always provide a black and white view of the world and so it’s important that when using it to form the basis of any decision, you do so with a wider level of influence than the numbers alone.
On paper, Alaska is the hardest working state in America, but the reality is that people in Utah aren’t lazy or work-shy in comparison and there are a whole host of factors at play that can influence the number of hours worked.
These can range from different working cultures or influences of a predominant industry within the state, the average age of the population, the average pay and much much more.”
