Take the time off

Kudos again to Expedia for repeating its annual “Vacation Deprivation” study, which once again shows that workers in several civilized countries get more vacation time than American workers, and use more of it.

Workers in France, Spain, Brazil, Britain, Norway and Sweden earn about twice as many days as Americans and take all the days they earn, whereas U.S. workers on average earned 12 days and used only 10.

Worse, we are backsliding: In last year’s survey, American workers earned 14 and took 12.

If it’s any consolation, we edged out Japan, whose workers earned 13 days and left eight on the table.

Better luck next year, America.
