I'm hoping that in the next few years on the state level we can pass initiatives that will ensure Americans not only have time off to kite, but also to spend with their families and take care of themselves when sick.
Unfortunately the trend of providing paid time off is regressing in major corporations of which using the top tech companies for example only provide 15 days. If you have children these days are quickly used up caring for them when they are sick, and you're lucky to schedule a week vacation.
With no downtime no wonder 1 in 10 Americans are on anti-depressants.

I'm an American, and I don't want any part of it either. I think the whole "gung-ho American work till you drop" thing is mostly a façade. Sure there are people who really feel like that, but I think a majority of people don't.
It's good propaganda though, used to try to get more work out of people.
Capitalism is a scourge of humanity.
