    I actually only get four weeks of paid vacation for the whole year. That is the max I can get too.
    Of course it isn't a standard in every profession here either, but still very common.

    Tamma, the U.S. Is quite different from the rest of the world concerning vacation time.

    I get a total of 8 weeks vacation a year, but am not allowed to take it consecutively. If I'm lucky I can take 2 weeks at a time, but 1 week is the norm.

    In our state - only the teachers get the summer off. Even then, most of them do some type of odd job to supplement their meager income.

    The only people with more time on their hands in the summer are kids who are out of school with nothing else to do.

    Maybe it's just me but, I am busier now then when I'm not on vacation.

    I see and it's interesting to see how it works elsewhere.

    I think collective labor agreements regulate it in many fields over here. And if it has been registered in an agreement like that and the field has agreed the agreement, employees have to get their 4 weeks vacation. I've caught that many fields have a clause like that in their agreement. At least many of people I know have a vacation like that (=very probably they've an agreement like that).

    I've also caught that you can agree that you divide your vacation in smaller pieces but many take whole the month at once.
