Now that summer has officially begun, you may start noticing your office looking a little empty, with all the people heading out on summer vacations. But it turns out there are a lot of people who won’t actually be going away in the coming months, and there’s one major reason why they’ll be stuck in the office - money.
A new Bankrate survey finds that 49% of Americans don’t plan to take a vacation this summer, with 24% of people saying money is one of the reasons. When only allowed to choose one reason for not planning a getaway, 50% of those not taking a vacation say they are staying home because they can’t afford it, while other reasons include:
Family duty (25%)
Can’t take time off work (22%)
Other vacation plans (6%)
Don’t want to (4%)
