Why Do Americans Get (and Take) So Little Vacation?

Sherry Ott at Briefcase to Backpack posted an article on America’s No Vacation Culture and included the CBS news feature embedded below.

It’s painful to see people work their entire lives away and not enjoy what life has to offer. I’m glad to be bucking the trend on this one — while working in corporate America, I used as much of my vacation time as physically possible to visit far away places. And now I’m on an extended “vacation” traveling the globe working virtually for YouReach Media and Virtual Results.

In America, people live to work. In most of the world, people work to live.
