A personal finance website has ranked Lincoln as the third-hardest-working city in the country for the second year in a row.

SmartAsset gave Lincoln high marks because 87 percent of people ages 16-64 are in the workforce and most people work year round.

What kept Lincoln from ranking higher was the fact that the average workweek is only about 37 hours.

Anchorage, Alaska, came in first, and Arlington, Virginia, was second on the list.
