French beat Americans in vacation days

"When compared with workers in other parts of the world, Americans receive the fewest vacation days per year with 14 days, according to the sixth annual Expedia.com Vacation Deprivation survey.

"Starting in 2005, Expedia expanded the survey globally to compare and contrast vacationing habits internationally. The 2006 Vacation Deprivation survey showed that Australia got an average of 17 days off, 19 in Canada, 24 in Great Britain, 27 in Germany and 39 in France.

"France also won the distinction of being the vacation champion, with 45 percent of its workers taking at least one, three- to four-week vacation."
