Why Americans don't use all days off - BBC News

1m ago


It's well known that people in the United States on average don't receive as much holiday time as their European counterparts. Studies show 25% of Americans do not receive any paid leave at all, and those who do rank behind their European counterparts. But what may be surprising is that US workers are also less likely to use the holiday time they do receive. This year four in 10 Americans do not intend to take all of their holiday time, partly in fear of losing their job or because it isn't encouraged by their employer.
