Everyone in civilized countries have more free time than Americans. Oh sure there are the sweat shops of China , but most countries give workers close to one month a year off. They don't require you to work for five years in the slave pit to get more than a week of vacation. On average a U.S. worker gets 13 paid vacation days a year.Korea and Japan both offer 24, France has 37, the Brits get 28. Here in America we work harder and longer than most other countries. All this work has lead to sleep deprivation. Many people don't even take all their vacation time for fear of looking expendable or being replaced. The CDC says lack of sleep is becoming an epidemic. Finally there is a study that shows taking a nap at work is actually a good idea! Read about it right here.
