Labor Day weekend might be upon us, but this infographic by Column Five Media for Rasmussen College shows that the U.S. has earned its "no-vacation nation" moniker. In 2011, American workers gave up 226 million vacation days, worth a total of about $34.3 billion. What gives?
The U.S. is far behind other countries when it comes to federally mandated paid vacation day minimums with a whopping zero. The U.K. has the most with 28, followed by France with 25. Even China offers 10 paid vacation days each year.
