Australia is the only country in the world with a Long Service Leave law. After 10 years of continual employment you are entitled to 2-3 months paid leave, depending on your industry.

In Brazil it’s 30 days paid vacations, plus some hollydays and sickdays. And there are 13 monthly salaries.
But the problem is that the average pay is very low.

Work for the feds! I get 18 vacation days, 11 federal holidays, 12 sick days, and 3 hours of paid exercise per week

The Japanese media a few weeks ago was talking about how wages in Japan have decreased over the past decade, the only industrialized nation to achieve this

My job told me I had to quit and reapply when I was ready to come back…
My manager asked how long I wanted off. I said six weeks. She rolled her eyes and said “that’s so long you should only take two.”

It was a dunkin donuts…
I didn’t go back lol

I’m France not only do employers have to provide paid leave. Employees are required to take them and I love it!
Lawmakers probably knew that if employees had a “choice” they would be pressured not to take them.

24 days in Ukraine and any national holidays doesn’t count in it, people often take paid leave close to holidays so they can go and chill more

I am from Malaysia and

> In Malaysia, the employees are entitled to paid annual leave, which depends on the period of employment as follows:

8 days per year for employees who have worked 1-2 years,
12 days per year for those who have worked 2-5 years,
6 days per year for employees who have worked longer than 5 years.

> The employment legislation in Malaysia provides leave entitlement only to those who earn below a certain income level or are involved in manual labor. At the same time, all other non-manual workers with higher incomes should rely solely on the terms of their employment contract.

> The definition of employees under the Employment Act 1955 of Malaysia includes those who are employed as manual labor workers, notwithstanding their salary level as well as non-manual workers whose monthly income doesn’t exceed RM2,000. The Act provides several types of leave entitlements, including holiday leave, annual leave, sick leave, and maternity leave, as well as other optional leaves. Other employees whose income exceeds the above threshold should rely exclusively on the terms of their labor agreements. [Source](

In a nutshell, regardless of type or labor or income, all companies offer at least 14 days of paid annual leave for all their employees.

U.S. employee here.

Not counting federal holidays (there are 11), which are paid days off, I earn 39 paid days off each year (that’s 26 days PTO and 13 sick).

New employees earn 26 per year (13 and 13).

Edit: Broke out sick days.

I don’t get a single day of paid leave in Toronto, for the record. Don’t know what these magical 10 days of paid leave entail, but yeah.

I’m incredibly fortunate to be in the position to be comfortably self-employed, where I’ve got more free days than work, but holy shit does it make me angry that we literally live in this country that’s supposedly the best at everything just to pretty much work until we’re too old to enjoy the money.

Like two weeks of paid leave is the average among my friends. Two weeks out of a year you’re not supposed to devote to the company. Twenty fucking weeks in a decade.

What the fuck are we doing this for? We are here for a finite amount of time and then we are gone from existence forever and the vast majority of that time is spent toiling away the only sunny hours we get in an office or whatever.

It makes me so mad.

That’s totally overlooking the issue with “sick days”. I’ve lost track of the amount of times I’ve heard anecdotal stories of service workers with COVID going into work sick instead of testing and quarantining because the implications were that you’d be fired if you took that time off, or at the very least, as a waiter or waitress, you wouldn’t get paid since the majority of your income is from tips.

Que in right wingers trying to do mental gymnastics / send pragur u links to convince us how this makes us more free somehow. Yeah save ur right wing propaganda…id rather Americans had the paid leave time with families

A lot of countries had revolts which brought unions and now were starting to see the same trend in America just took awhile

US employee here. I’m an hourly employee and in a (fairly weak) union.

Employees here get 10 days of paid vacation (yearly), 12 hours of PTO (every 6 months) and 11 paid holidays after passing their 90 day probationary period.

After 5 years, you get 15 days paid vacation. 20 days at 15 years and the maximum (under the current contract) at 26 days at 20 years.

I deliever food on my bike (Foodora) I work 10 hours a week and get paid for 35 days holiday a year which amounts to about $800 extra in June/July. We get that paid extra to us even if we don’t take any holiday at all and we can roll over one week holiday to the next year, giving us 6 weeks or 42 holiday days 😎💵😎💵😎💵 where do I live oh yes that would be NORWAY NORWAY NORWAY 🇳🇴

Panama is 30 days obligatory paid vacation yearly and any days you don’t use carry and stack over to the next year and don’t expire until like 6 years after

Its just straight up the law

As an Icelandic citizen, I love being excluded from every chart imaginable, even in the ones where Iceland probably ranks high.
