>5 weeks?! my god.... what kinda job lets ya have 5 weeks off?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.
