 Americans are bad at taking vacation days.  That's a fact.  But if the reason you don't use your vacation days is because you think it'll help your career if you're there every single day . . . it's exactly the opposite.

A new survey found that you're MORE likely to get a raise or a bonus if you take at least 11 vacation days a year.  Maybe everyone at your job sees how TERRIBLE it is without you and they realize they need to pay you more to keep you around?

Here are a few more results from the survey . . .

1.  The main reason people pass on taking vacations is they hate the mountain of work that's waiting for them when they get back.

2.  58% say their boss isn't very supportive of them taking vacation time.

3.  And the average person took 20 vacation days a year between 1976 and 2000 . . . but that's down to 16 vacation days a year today.
