Debbie here. Yes yes yes...If anyone wants to send signatures, or e-mails,
I will forward them to Arthur Frommer who seems to be at the head of the
movement to increase
vacation time for Americans. I am serious about this.
Does anyone read Frommer's Budget Travel magazine? I was shocked, but
in the Letters column, several US writers actually objected to giving
Americans more vacation time.
Also, I would think that the travel industry would really be getting behind
this...My daughter wrote a paper on the subject for her college writing
course. We did some internet
research that showed us that we in the US get less vacation time than
citizens in almost any other industrialized nation.
I also want to say that I taught my first session of my Budget Travel
in Europe with Comfort this past Tuesday and it was a huge success. The
class was loaded with
interesting travellers and we shared lots of info and stories. Now, can
anyone suggest topics for next week???
