New Survey: Millennial Attitudes Making America’s Vacation Problem Worse

Millennial workers are the most likely generation to forfeit time off, even though they earn the least amount of vacation days. Millennials stay at work because they feel more fear and greater guilt about taking time away from the office than any other generation.

These findings, from Project: Time Off’s new report, The Work Martyr’s Cautionary Tale: How the Millennial Experience Will Define America’s Vacation Culture, provide a closer look at who work martyrs are and the negative consequences of their behavior to the individual, business, and broader economy.

Project Time Off’s research makes clear that work martyrs – employees who skip vacation to show complete dedication to their job, are worried they will be seen as replaceable, feel guilty for using time off, and believe they alone can do the job – are overwhelmingly Millennials. In fact, more than four in ten (43%) work martyrs are Millennials, compared to just 29 percent of all workers.

“The ‘entitled Millennial’ narrative is dead wrong when it comes to vacation. As the largest generation in the workforce, one that is now stepping into management, Millennials are developing vacation attitudes that will define and negatively affect America’s work culture,” said Project: Time Off Senior Director and report author Katie Denis. “The circumstances of the Millennial experience—the Great Recession and its aftershocks, growing student debt, and an always-connected lifestyle—have created a perfect storm for their work martyr behavior.”

Millennials are much more insecure about their employment compared to other generations. Compared to Boomers, Millennials are at least twice as likely to find taking time off difficult because they don’t want to lose consideration for a raise or promotion, don’t want others to think they are replaceable, and want to show complete dedication, among other reasons.

The pressures of American work culture have produced ideal conditions for the rise of the work martyr. Almost half (48%) of Millennials think it is a good thing to be seen as a work martyr by their boss, far outpacing the average (39%) and well ahead of the Boomer generation (32%).More than one-quarter (28%) of Millennials are in management roles already, a number that will rise as Boomers leave the workforce. Nearly half (47%) of Millennial managers said that company pressure prevents them from approving time off requests for their direct reports, compared to just 34 percent of Generation X and 37 percent of Boomers who feel the same.

“There are larger implications for the workforce when people don’t take vacation,” Denis added. “Time off is essential to employee productivity, creativity, and overall performance. Businesses need to recognize the power of time off and work toward creating a positive vacation culture.”

Methodology
GfK conducted an online survey using the GfK KnowledgePanel® from January 20-February 16, 2016 with 5,641 American workers working at least 35 hours per week and who receive paid time off. GfK’s KnowledgePanel® is the only large-scale online panel based on a representative random sample of the U.S. population. See the report for full methodology.

Five Myths About TSA Pre✓ and a trip along with the Prompt Bus Charters at competitive rates tour package in US

There are certain misconceptions about the program and what it does.

Here are five common myths about TSA Pre✓.

YOu might be aware of TSA Pre✓ lanes at airport security checkpoints.

If they’re signed up for TSA Pre✓ (also known as TSA PreCheck) their security wait will likely be shorter, and they won’t have to remove their belts, jackets, shoes, laptops or 3-1-1 liquids as they go through screening.

However, millions of eligible people in the U.S. are still not signed up for this valuable trusted traveler program, in many cases because they harbor some misconceptions about TSA Pre✓ and what it does. Here are five common myths about TSA Pre✓:

 

1. It’s basically a VIP program to make things more convenient for people with money.

While it’s true that TSA Pre✓ makes the screening process more efficient, it is above all a security program.

 

2. TSA Pre✓ lines are just as long.

Lines are getting longer in many major U.S. hub airports, and that is a serious problem. Across the board, though, TSA Pre✓ lines cut the average wait time in half.

3. It lowers security standards at airports.

TSA Pre✓ actually employs the most rigorous and innovative security processes available to pre-screen travelers and determine whether to deem them low-risk. All Pre✓ applicants provide, through a two-part online and in-person process, biographic and biometric information providing comprehensive proof of identity, and are subject to an exhaustive background check.

4. It’s so hard to apply for it.

While TSA could always make the Pre✓application more streamlined, there are currently only two steps to take when applying for Pre✓.

5. It’s way too expensive.

TSA Pre✓ enrollment costs $85 for five years—that’s $17 a year, less than the average fee to check one bag on a single flight. The more you travel, too, the more cost-effective Pre✓enrollment becomes. That $17-per-year enrollment fee works out to $2.13 for four round trips, or $1.06 at eight round trips in one year— less than the cost of an average cup of coffee.

When you visit the United States of America from another country, you should be aware of some differences.  We still use the old British system of measurement, (the system that the British no longer use).

When driving an auto in the USA, you should bear in mind that each of the 50 states has its own set of laws and regulations concerning driving.

The regulations are all very similar, but there are some subtle differences that you should know.  We provide some useful tips.

Tipping is a common practice in most restaurants, bars and other service establishments.  Waiters and waitresses are paid a substandard wage on the presumption that they will earn additional income from tips.  We provide some tips on tipping.

Each state has different driving laws

  • If you drive in the USA, remember that each of the 50 states has its own set of traffic laws and regulations.
  • Fortunately, most of the laws are the same, but some states have slightly different rules. When you rent a car, you should ask the agent if there are any special driving rules in that state.
  • When driving in multiple states, check a tour book for any special driving rules in each state.
Maximum speed limits in all states
  • The speed limit in most states is now 65 miles per hour (about 110 km/hr) except where signs indicate slower or faster speeds.

Minimum driving age

  • The minimum age for driving is 16 in most states but some states will not allow unrestricted driving until 18.
  • Some car rental agencies refuse to rent a car to any person under 25 years of age.

Seat belts are required

  • Nearly all states have laws requiring the driver and front passengers to wear seat belts.
  • Many states require children to wear seat belts even in the back seats. Nearly every state requires special child restraint seats for all young children.
  • Most states require motorcyclists to wear helmets.

Radar Detectors illegal in some states

  • Some states permit you to use radar detectors, while other states prohibit them. Many people seem to ignore this prohibition.
  • Some states require you to use daytime running lights during rain.

 

 

Strict enforcement of certain driving laws

 

At 1,568 miles, Interstate 35 is the ninth-longest Interstate Highway. It serves six states: Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, and Minnesota. 

 

  • The speed limit in front of every school is greatly reduced when classes are in session.
  • The reduced limits in these school zones is posted on a sign.
  • When these reduced limits are in effect, lights with the limit signg will flash.
  • You are required to stop in both directions for any school bus with flashing lights.

American Automobile Association Benefits

 

  • The American Automobile Association (AAA), commonly called the “triple A”, provides some wonderful services to drivers.
  • They have offices in every city and most of the larger towns in the US.
  • If you are a member of a national motor club in your home country, you can receive many of their benefits free of charge by simply showing your membership card.
  • The AAA provides free maps and tourist guides for any city or state in the US.
  • Many hotels offer discounted rates to AAA members.
The US highway system
  • The USA has an extensive system of interstate highways and state maintained roads. Some of the major highways are toll roads often called turnpikes.
  • All major interstate highways running north to south have odd numbers and are ordered from I-5 on the Pacific coast to I-95 along the Atlantic coast.

 

  • All interstates running east to west are evenly numbered beginning with I-8 and I-10 near the Mexican border to I-94 near Canada.
  • Want to know how long it will take to drive from one destination to the next? Visit our Distance Finder for the miles and kilometers between major attractions.
