Florida is lazy, but look where we live, wouldn't you be?


MIAMI – With great weather and beaches, is it any wonder that Floridians are among the laziest in the nation?

Who can work when you live in paradise?

A new study lists the Sunshine State No. 40 among the Hardest-Working States in the U.S. (remember, there's only 50 of those states).

Floridians don't fare well in Indirect Work Factors (No. 46) in which the time spent on leisure and volunteer hours are measured.
