The 10 Best Countries to Work In
By Bryan Nelson, Mother Nature Network
Finding the perfect balance between work, family and leisure is one of the keys to happiness in life, but not all nations are created equal when it comes to fostering that balance. Many Americans may be surprised to learn that the U.S. lags far behind most other Western nations in regard to the kinds of free time it affords its workers. For instance, while the vast majority of European nations mandate paid vacation or holiday time for their workers, the U.S. has no such mandate. The truth is just as grim when it comes to paid maternity leave. The United States, along with Papua New Guinea and Swaziland, are the only countries in the world that do not require some form of maternity leave.
