Around the world, Americans are known for their solid work ethic.
Here in the United States, we place a premium on hard work.
However, that might actually be detrimental to us.
If you are looking for a good work/life balance, the fact that you leave an average of 11 vacation days on the table (according to CNN Money) could be a bad thing.
It might even reduce your productivity level.
How Does U.S. Vacation Time Stack Up against Other Countries
We take much less vacation than other countries.
In fact, many countries require companies to give a certain number of paid vacation days for employees with 10 years of services. The United States isn’t one of those countries, but China is (10 paid vacation days). Other countries include the United Kingdom, with 28, and Japan with 20.
