Americans get the least amount of required vacation time each year (none for employees with at least 10 years of service) when compared to workers in other developed nations around the world (10-28 days for employees with at least 10 years of service). However, nearly half of Americans do not use all of the small amount of vacation time they are given.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Americans gave up 226 million vacation days in 2011 with the average worker leaving two unused vacation days on the table. That equates to $34.3 billion worth of time lost on unused vacations.
Those are just a few of the disappointing statistics from an infographic created by Compliance and Safety, which you can see below.
