Parade magazine ranked America's top twenty-five hardest working cities, and Gainesville ranked sixth on the list.

The information was provided by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Census Bureau and other resources.

Gainesville was the only city in Florida that was ranked in the top ten.
Columbia, Missouri took the top spot.
