Is Your Next Vacation Paid? America Lags In Paid Time Off

Posted: Updated:

A recent study has revealed that one in four Americans is given paid vacation time.

This may come as a shock to some, but the United States is the only developed country that doesn't require companies to provide paid vacation for employees, according to the Center for Economic and Policy Research.

In the land down under, Australia, employers must provide their workers with 35 paid days off.

French and Italian employees are given 31 days of paid vacation in their respective countries as well.

While most high-paying jobs usually offer some sort of vacation package, less than half of low-paying workers get paid vacation.
