Want a raise? Take your vacation days!

Let them appreciate you when you're gone.

A new survey by Project: Timeoff 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.
