"The average American worker takes less vacation time than a medieval peasant"
A very interesting read on how work hours and leisure time changed through history.
@pinkprius It's a very different world. I had a coworker who showed up at work and told us he decided to go and missed his grandmother's funeral (voluntarily). He was upset about it and people didn't bat an eyelid.. Versus an EU coworker taking a day or two off for a similar event.
