      ... Almost any kind of job. By state law every worker in Sweden is entiteled to a minimum of 5 weeks of paid vacation. This is not something unique for Sweden.

        Almost any kind of job. By state law every worker in Sweden is
        entiteled to a minimum of 5 weeks of paid vacation. This is not
        something unique for Sweden. Almost all west European countries
        have similar vacation lenghts - I think the Germans have even got
        a sixth week. When it comes to vacations I think we are much better
        off in good old Europe than in America. The american workers haven't
        realized yet that they are virtually enslaved and cheated up to the neck.
