Feeling overworked? Moving to a different city could help. If you work in New York City, San Francisco, or Washington, D.C., you probably have one of the longest work weeks in the country, according to a new report from the New York City Comptroller.

Full-time employees in New York, which tops the list, face a work week of more than 49 hours, including around six hours of commuting time. That’s three hours more than workers in Phoenix, San Diego, and Portland spend working and commuting.
