Via Ezra Klein, today is a good day to remember that the U.S. is the only advanced country that doesn’t guarantee paid vacation days and paid holidays. About a quarter of U.S. workers don’t receive paid time off.
Not surprisingly, low-income employees and part-time employees are less likely to get paid time off, with less than half of low-income workers receiving paid vacation days. And let’s not forget that approximately 7.26 million Americans work more than one job. [Wonkblog]
