Americans Throw Away 4 Vacation Days A Year
Call it obsession or call it dedication, but Americans have a lot of trouble taking a few days off.
A new survey from Expedia finds that American workers typically leave four full days of vacation on the table each year – averaging just 11 of the 15 days available to them. Multiply that by the 122 million full-time workers in the country and it works out to 500 million days left unused. Put another way: Every year, we collectively ignore more than 1.3 million years of available vacation.
