Report places BR in top 10 'Least Hardworking' cities
BATON ROUGE - According to a recently published Forbes article, Baton Rouge ranks as one of the top ten least hardworking cities.
The capital city falls at number four on the list.
Coming in at number 3 is Columbia, South Carolina, number 2 is Buffalo, New York, and number 1 is Burlington, Vermont.
The article said people in the Red Stick work 37 hours a week on average, though many people in Baton Rouge said they're putting in more than 40.
"(The people who work here, work) probably 45 hours. They expect 50 from managers like me. We'll work weekends, install our own equipment," said Chris Stripling, a manager at Sunshine Cleaners.
Stripling said he doesn't think the findings are accurate based off of what he can tell about workers in the Red Stick.
According to the report, cities in Vermont, New York and South Carolina also made the "least hardworking" list. To see the entire report, visit the following link.
