The land of the free and the home of the brave, sure! However, as we approach Employee Appreciation Day, are employees really appreciated? Dedicated ones that get their jobs done on time, under any circumstances, people like you. It's a known fact we as Americans, work more hours than our European counterparts.

Wyoming has a strong work ethic and it shows once again, as Cheyenne, Wyoming lands at # 3, on the 2017 Hardest-Working Cities in America list.
