A large percentage of American workers won’t take a vacation, even though they are given paid time-off by employers. This really isn’t news, but many of us have always wondered why. The answer is because American workers are simply too scared and stressed out to go on vacation.
A recent survey from the US Travel Association and market research firm GfK found that about 40 percent of Americans will not be using all of their paid vacation days this year. The survey polled 1,303 workers, which includes 235 senior business leaders.
