Get Paid $5,000 to Take Your Vacation Days

The United States is full of workaholics, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, which says the U.S. is the only country not to require any paid time off and those with vacation days leave 33 percent of them on the table.

Enter Wyndham Hotels & Resorts has launched “Operation Out Of Office,” encouraging workers to take their vacation days.

One overworked individual will win a two-week vacation and a $5,000 paycheck. You can nominate someone or yourself with a 100 word or less description of why they or you deserve a vacation.

Email by 11:59 p.m. ET on April 6, 2021. Nominees must be at least 21 years old.

When was the last time you took a vacation? Could you take a two-week vacation and totally unplug?
