A recent CNN Money article cited that 57% of workers had unused vacation days left at end of 2011. Kelton Research surveys indicated that an overwhelming work load was the biggest reason for foregoing paid time off. Some find that the added stress of returning to a pile of backed-up work was not worth it when weighed against the benefit of a vacation. Others pass on time off because of continued fears of losing their job in a such a poor market and many say they just can’t afford to go anywhere when given the time to do so.
What are you planning to do with your vacation days this year?
