The topic for this homework is to analyze the dramatically different vacation policy of nations and consider the impact of this immense diversity upon the workforce. Does this diversity enhance manufacturing productivity? Does this societal diversity affect the quality of life for employees? How do long hours in the office affect the health of workers?

If Australians enjoy six weeks of vacation each year, should US companies offer this period of recuperation too? Whats the work-life balance? After all, human beings are not electro-mechanical robots!
