Singaporeans 6th most vacation-deprived globally
Singaporeans need more time away from the daily grind, according to a new survey out yesterday.
It found that around 60% of full-time workers felt "vacation-deprived" last year, with 40% saying they could not get enough time off work to use up their annual leave.
A striking 77% said they would take a pay cut just to get an extra day off, noted the survey by travel agency Expedia, which polled around 11,000 full-time working adults across 19 markets, including 300 here.
The finding that 63% of workers here felt they did not get enough vacation time last year moved Singapore up one spot to the sixth most vacation-deprived market in the world.
