The recession has scared most of us. You worry that the job you thought you had is going to go to someone else and your employer keeps you in fear that this day might be your last. People are responding to this problem by refusing to take days off of work. Also,companies are giving them fewer days to begin with.
“Fear of being replaced” and “too much work” were two of the biggest reasons respondents cited in the survey.
The global online survey, “Vacation Deprivation,” was conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of travel site Expedia from September to October, 2012 . The site has commissioned the survey annually since 2000.
