Yes, you read the headline correctly. We've got happy shift workers in the 305 and 954.
A new study by Homebase, a cloud-based timesheet/timeclock scheduling tools company, shows that Miami and Fort Lauderdale rank second in the country, just behind El Paso, Texas when it comes to happy shift workers.
Orlando and Tampa ranked among the 10 happiest cities in the nation. Ravi Dehar, a spokesman for the San Francisco-based Homebase says that “Hourly restaurant and retail workers in Miami rated their shifts 4.5- or 5-stars 93% of the time. The second-highest shift ratings in the country, behind El Paso at 94%,” Yet, according to the numbers, Miami and Fort Lauderdale retail workers, on average, reported a 90% satisfaction level, that's just a few points below the other industries.
THE 10 CITIES WITH THE HAPPIEST SHIFT WORKERS
1. El Paso, Texas.
2. Miami-Fort Lauderdale-Pompano Beach, Florida.
3. San Diego, California.
4. Riverside, California.

6. Orlando-Kissimmee, Florida.

Miami was considered “vibrant” and “one of the largest international business hubs in the world” and a “major leader in finance, commerce, culture and entertainment” by Homebase.
Well, that's kind of something South Floridians already know, right?
