Worldwide Vacation Days

Ever wish you had more vacation days? For workers in some countries, the amount of vacation days they are required to receive nearly double that of countries in the lower ranges.

According to a recent survey from Mercer Consulting, Brazil and Lithuania have the most overall vacation days, while the US and Canada are among the countries mandating the fewest. The numbers include both minimum mandatory days off, as well as public holidays. Since these numbers vary and only represent minimum levels, there is no apples-to-apples comparison between countries.
