    U.S. Workers are the Most Vacation-Deprived in the World, Study Says - By Katherine Torres, Occupational Hazards
    Many American employees are finding that their job demands prevent them from taking the vacation time they are entitled to. Another survey conducted by Oxford Health Plans in February 2000 reported that one in six employees are so overworked they are unable to use up their annual vacation despite having the least vacation time in the industrialized world (Americans receive an average of 14 vacation days per year).

    Alan Muney, M.D., Oxford's chief medical officer, said vacations are necessary as 'they cut down on stress-related illness and save health care dollars.'
