The article focuses on the vacation time that a U.S. citizen gets among the other countries in the industrialized world. An average of 8.1 days after a year on the job and 10.2 days after three years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. In fact, reports a survey conducted by the online travel company, U.S. workers will be taking 10 percent less vacation time than they did last year. In the state of Washington, 17 percent of workers get no paid leave. A grass-roots campaign is under way to lobby for a law mandating a minimum of three weeks of paid leave.
