Vacations and Mini-Retirements

Employees need vacations to stay productive and get rid of stress from the office. Some countries agree with this concept. In France, for example, the work week is only thirty-five hours to improve people's lives. And in Germany, one month vacations are common.

Other countries do the opposite. Japanese employees take only short vacations because they want to help their coworkers.

In the US, work habits continue to change. Fewer employees take all of their vacation days, which equals about nine days

per year. Because of the economy, many employees are worried about losing their jobs. As a result, they want to be viewed as hard workers who don't need time off.

But an increasing number of people support mini-retirements. Rather than take a short vacation every year, the

mini-retirement is similar to an extended vacation. The idea lets employees follow dreams and achieve personal goals when they are younger instead of when they are older. With technology, Internet cafes, and free Wi-Fi, it's even possible to stay up to date with the office.

Life should be more than work, money, and savings. Hopefully, more offices around the world will encourage vacations, and

if possible, mini-retirements too.

 

Do you agree or disagree? Why?

  1. Move to a foreign country and travel a lot.
  2. Open a small restaurant in an area visited by tourists and make many new friends.
  3. Volunteer at a community center and help people.
  4. Sit at home, read, and watch TV.
  5. Take up many new hobbies that you couldn't do when you were younger.
