Find out where Milwaukee ranks on "America's Hardest Working Towns" list

We all know that Milwaukeeans work hard and play hard, and now Parade confirms it putting Brew City at No. 20 on its list of "America's Hardest Working Towns."

This latest ranking, a creative marketing tie-in from Parade and Total Cereal, was based on average hours worked per capita, willingness to work during personal time, number of dual income homes and local employment rate.

The top five cities were Columbia, Mo.; Hartford, Conn.; Norfolk, Va.; Bloomington, Ind., and Tuscaloosa, Ala.

Here's what Parade.com had to say about Milwaukee.

20. Milwaukee, Wisconsin

"With the decline of manufacturing jobs in Wisconsin, Milwaukee residents have been hard at work over the last decade revitalizing their hometown, including the construction of the Milwaukee Riverwalk and Miller Park. Metro Milwaukee added 3,000 jobs to payrolls in February of this year alone. The city scored four points above the national average in sacrificing personal time for work and five times above the national average in agreeing with the statement, 'I must admit, I work most weekends.'"
