CAN YOU GUESS WHICH COUNTRY’S WORKERS GET AND USE THE MOST PAID VACATION DAYS?
If you guessed ANY of the answers except the USA, congratulations, you nailed it! (We admit it was kind of a trick question, but we like to stack the odds in your favor – especially with the news we are about to break to you)
On average workers in France, Finland, Spain, Germany, and Brazil get 30 days of paid vacation time and TAKE 30 days of vacation time. That’s nearly a month not worrying about things like meetings, deadlines, bosses, who stole your sandwich *with your name on it* out of the break room refrigerator, and commuting.
In comparison US workers get about 10 days of vacation time and take 17! Get this – 23% of Americans don’t ANY paid vacations or holidays. Is this even real life?
Now, there’s nothing wrong with working hard but I’m sure everyone from those countries will attest to living a happier life when you work to live versus living to work.
THE MORAL OF THE STORY!
By no means are we suggesting you pick up and move out of the country, although we understand the temptation to do just that!
Instead, why not make the most of your vacation days. Take them all and live your best life by organizing some quality time with your friends and family at a private bubble ball soccer NYC event.
And if you insist on never using those vacation days or simply enjoy spending as much time as humanly possible with your co-workers and clients because you just love them so much, convince your manager, team leader, boss or the HR department to host a bubble ball soccer NYC team building event for you and your overworked peers. Use the argument that it’s well deserved and bring your team as back up if necessary!
*At the very least, you can take your frustrations out on our bubble ball suits that you’ll have to be up early for work the next day!
