Why Americans are afraid to take vacation
Following up on this post by Maher, see this article. About 40% won't use all their vacation time this year. Why? They know the work will build up when they're gone and require loads of overtime for weeks just to catch up. And they fear replacement by more desperate but equally qualified candidates that have been out of work for a while. See the article for the other reasons. As a prior worker in big business I can vouch for both of the above. The 1%ers have deliberately created this situation to keep us overworked, underpaid and afraid for our jobs so that they have complete control over their slaves.
