Even in an era of renewed respect for employee benefits, vacation is getting less love in the American workplace.
Excerpt from New York Times
In 1992-93, 82 percent of American workers reported receiving paid vacation days. Today the share is down to 77 percent. The biggest declines occurred for people working part time and for people working at establishments with fewer than 100 employees.
For most other kinds of paid leave, though, employees’ access has increased.
