    Wow. Considering how little the United States has in comparison, Europe must have massive deficits.

    I work 40ish hours a week and get 3 weeks of paid vacation a year + holiday and sick time.

    I think that is about average for your run of the mill US career salary position.

    The US has far bigger deficit than Europe I believe but most Europeans do not earn as much as Americans in the equivalent jobs.

    They can't. Their economies don't support it.

    That's also why they have so little in comparison. Europe doesn't produce, but they don't consume either. Don't know if this is because they can't or don't want to, but their economies don't allow for it on a large scale.

    So does America though. While it doesn't help, it's not the dagger or we'd be feeling it too.

    Vacationing is a human privilege, not a human right. I would say keeping your wealth is more of a human right than vacationing. Essentially they are taking from the taxpayers and giving money to the poor so that they can go on vacation. Essentially the poor have the right, as humans, to take money from the rich so that they can enjoy a vacation.

    Yes, it's a human right! We need a National Vacation Plan to ensure that every American has access to Vacation Care!
