This might be that rare thing, a petition all Americans can agree on. Or perhaps not - if you're an employer.
A petition to the White House is calling for a mandatory minimum of three weeks paid vacation. Launched on Saturday Dec 21, it's already received 5,000 signatures, so it's one fifth of the way to receiving an official White House response.
(In case anyone wants to keep track of which petitions are now scheduled for a White House response - they include the Texas petition to secede, and several petitions to declare the Westboro Baptist Church a hate group.)
America is the only country among the world's 21 wealthiest nations without any paid vacation time enforced by law. In Britain, workers get 4 weeks. And as the petition points out, Germans managed to keep up a successful economy while enjoying upwards of 6 weeks paid vacation, mandated by law.
