A night shift is generally defined as a job that requires employees to work a portion of their shift during nighttime hours (usually a shift that goes past midnight). A typical night shift, also known as a third shift, could involve working from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. or 5 p.m. to 2 a.m.
Night shifts are common in many areas of the country. But do you know which U.S. cities have the highest percentage of people working night jobs?
The researchers at NapLab looked at data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey to see how many people in metropolitan areas with more than 200,000 workers started their shifts between the hours of 4 p.m. and 4:59 a.m.
