Want A Vacation? Quit!
The NY Times looks at a trend in younger workers where faced with the limitations of a 2 week maximum vacation period (we're talking US not Germany here obviously) – they'd rather quit to fully enjoy life. NYT says:
Some use quitting as an opportunity for a good, long visit back home, or to spend time with a dying grandparent. Others want the time to embark on real vacations or adventures.
And what's wrong with taking all that ambition and putting it into a bus trip through India? A climb up Kilimanjaro? A month studying Russian in Moscow?
