Just say no to six weeks of vacation

On March 11, the Swiss voted on a number of issues. The one I was most interested in? Would the Swiss vote in favor of six weeks of vacation for all? (Right now the Swiss have a mandatory four weeks of vacation).

Six weeks of vacation would have been a no-brainer "hell, yes" vote from a foreigner like me, but alas, my predictions were right: the Swiss voted "no" to six weeks of vacation. Why? As one Swiss colleague put it, "We don't want to be like the French."

Would you have voted for six weeks of vacation?

Glad to know I'm at least living the Swiss vacation lifestyle...although I'm willing to strive for the French :)

I wouldn't mind being French either in this case!

Well, I'm French, so I'd say yes ;-) I don't know if I love our reputation abroad though...
