Employees in Montana have their nose to the grindstone, study says

Posted: Updated:

According to a new study, each worker in Montana used an average of 16 vacation days in 2017.

On the other end of the spectrum, Colorado led the way with employees using just over 20 vacation days in 2017.

Overall, the U.S. uses an average of 17 vacation days annually.

So why do we take less vacation time here in Montana?

Well for starters, we earn less of it.

On average, we earn just under 22 days of vacation; making us the third-lowest in the country. 

Not only this, but work culture plays a role as well. 

For states such as Washington and Virginia, taking time off is highly encouraged. 

Maybe it's a lesson to be learned from our friends on the East Coast.
