Stat: Americans Lose 500 Million Vacation Days in 2013

Purchasing Power has released a new infographic, "Vacations: A Luxury or Necessity," that highlights the continued vacation-deprived state of the American public. A recent survey conducted by Harris Poll on behalf of Purchasing Power in March 2014 showed that 28 percent of full-time employees who receive any paid time off didn't take a vacation getaway last year where they truly went away and 52 percent of those employees said it was because they couldn't afford to do so.
