October 20, 2014All Work, No Pay Executive Summary
Americans are work martyrs. They leave unused time off and earned benefits on the table, essentially working for free.
From 1976 to 2000, American workers used 20.3 days of vacation each year. Since then, the number has dropped precipitously, with American workers reporting just 16.0 days used in 2013—almost a full work-week less compared to pre-2000 levels.
