Well according to an online study, Australian’s are the third most holiday deprived nation in the developed world. Travel Company Expedia found that Aussie’s took 16.5 days annual leave on average, while workers in France (whom take the most holidays) took 34.5 days a year.
Why? Apparently we are shying away from the holidays because we fear it would put our careers at risk. Especially workers aged 18 – 34 as they think they will miss out on an important decision at work. Older workers on the hand tend to save up their annual leave and cash it in.
