Paid Vacation Time around the World (Infographic)

As summer approaches, many of us have vacation on our minds. We’re ready to get out of the office and head towards a tropical location with our family or friends. Though the thought of getting away is exciting, it’s also stressful to think about all the work (and possibly pay) we’re leaving behind.

Did you know that the United States is the only advanced economy that doesn’t require employers to provide paid vacation time? In comparison, countries in the European Union require companies to give employees a minimum of four weeks per year off. Many countries also provide paid time off for national and regional holidays. Because of this, it’s no surprise that the United States has fewer vacation days than most other countries around the world.
