Vacation Time... Want More?

Vacation Time... Want More?


Vive La Difference

Dear CC: I just learned that everyone in Europe gets six weeks off and full health benefits. I’ve been in my job five years and still get two weeks and have to pitch in for insurance. Why do Euros have it so good?


They also eat salad for dessert. Wouldn’t you rather have a Snickers? Don’t even think about comparing your lot to some mademoiselle’s in Marseilles. They have guaranteed jobs for life, lovers on the side, and they never get fat. We have chronic indigestion, 10,000-person downsizings to please Wall Street, and nobody’s getting laid enough. But we’re Americans, damn it, and we wouldn’t want it any other way.
