Days off in the USA:
Unfortunately, the USA does not have any law that forces companies to give paid vacation time. That's right, NONE! No fear though. When you work for a large company you often get something. According to Mercer, the minimum paid vacation days for large companies is 15. Yes 15, that is three weeks off. Sounds really great when you add in the 10 paid public holidays (also not law that these days must be given off but typical for large companies). Twenty-five days off if you have a good job that gives them to you. That is plenty of time to relax a little and still get paid...until you compare it to Germany.
