Americans not using vacation time and it hurts the economy, tourism dept. says

WISCONSIN (WQOW) - The Wisconsin Department of Tourism says not enough Americans are using all their vacation time and it is limiting potential economic growth.

A new report shows nearly half of Americans don't use up all of their vacation days for the year.

Officials say besides the obvious benefits of rest and relaxation, the state's tourism industry is also impacted.

Officials say if Americans used all of their time off to travel, the economy would see a boost of $150 billion in travel spending and the U.S. tourism industry would create three million jobs.
