Expert Market combined individual ranking of cities considering salary, working hours, and holiday offered to analyse which city offered the best rewards for the least amount of work.

In the US, Chicago was ranked the worst city with only 14 days of holiday being given to workers, although they did earn an average ?2,654 each month. New York did, however, make the top 20 list of cities, with a 25 hour working week with ?3,153 a month. Other cities which?made the top 20?but weren’t quite up to the top 10 names included Milan, Barcelona, Berlin and Moscow.
