Countries With the Most Vacation Time

I need a vacation…

There’s nothing like a three day weekend to make you wish you had more time off… especially in America. Turns out most of the industrialized world get more vacation time than us. A lot more. Mercer, the human resources consulting firm, figured out how many vacation days citizens of different countries get. The study looks at both ‘floating’ vacation days for individuals with at least 10 years of service within a given field (for which there are mandatory minimums according to law) as well as national holidays. We’ll look at the top 20 in ascending order. The United States is not on the list (not even close), though we’ll take a closer look at America’s numbers at the end of this story.
