I often complain that in the UK companies only have a legal obligation to give 4 weeks full paid holidays, plus bank holidays. In Germany it is 6 weeks, and some other countries in Europe even more. However in the US I believe your annual entitlement can be as little as one week. This makes the family/work life balance a farce.

My question is, why the hell do the people of the States put up with it ?
