The stats and stories about unused vacation time in the USA are sad and startling. But these numbers provide a glimpse into the working lives of the poor stiffs who find taking time off to be “difficult.”
Of course, that day before and after breaking away can be a challenge. But don’t most worthwhile pursuits in life come with a cost? Heck, even vedging in front of the TV requires some electronics, cable or satellite, cold beer and fresh chips!
Since enjoying hard-earned vacation time can be so challenging, BreakAways make even more sense. After all, the workday before and after escaping for a month or six probably isn’t any more “difficult” than when you take a week off.
And for sure the payoff is much, much bigger!
