The Alamo City may be a work in progress when it comes to content laborers.

A report from job website Lensa ranks San Antonio as No. 8 among the U.S. cities with the unhappiest workers.

The report looks at four factors — vacation days taken, hours worked per week, average pay, and overall happiness — to determine the happiest and unhappiest cities for U.S. workers.

  • 39.2 average hours worked per week.
  • Median annual pay of $25,894.
  • Happiness score of out of 100: 48.61.
