This was the question asked by a recent survey to workers in America’s 10 largest cities. Half of respondents claimed that they would sacrifice workplace benefits in order to receive more paid time off.

More specifically, more than 10% of all employees would choose more vacation time over a higher salary or a promotion. Nearly 17% of workers would forgo an annual bonus in exchange for more days off. 10% of those surveyed would decline a 401(k) match in exchange for more vacation time and 25% would give up a private office for more paid time off.
Does this seem drastic to you? Would you sacrifice a higher salary for more vacations? Let us know @travefy.
