Roger in Sheffield BS: US / UK work differences (29) RE: BS: US / UK work differences 08 May 02

I am entitled to 22 days paid holiday a year plus bank holidays, though 3 of these days have to be taken at Christmas
I just wondered why my american friend was surprised that I spent 10 days there, now I see that this could be most of his holiday entitlement while its only around half mine
My job is low paid, relatively stress free and with fixed 7.30-4.30 hours
My US friend is a truck driver and says the pay is good although he works long and unsociable hours and often doesn't know - if/where/or what time - he will be working till the night before
Perhaps he is working himself to early retirement but I just worry that a heart attack may get him first
