By the Numbers: 150th
In a ranking of the most sinful cities in America, it’s no shocker that Sin City tops the list. But where does San Jose fall on a slate of 150 locales? Dead last. Fremont, the sleepy suburban neighbor to the north, ranks next to last. That’s according to an “evil deeds” index released this month by WalletHub. The financial advice site analyzed the most populous U.S. cities based on 27 “key indicators of evil deeds.” The deeds fall under seven categories: anger and hatred, jealousy, vices and excesses, avarice, lust, vanity and laziness. Indicators of said deeds include heavy boozing, infidelity, violent crime, theft, obesity, drug overdoses, plastic surgeries and theft. On WalletHub’s list of hardest-working cities, however, San Jose came in 54th out of 150. Maybe Silicon Valley’s staggering cost of living has something to do with the ranking. San Jose’s too busy working for rent and high-priced homes to afford any vices.
