According to the U.S. Travel Association study
, 60 percent of those asked in South Dakota say they avoid vacations because they dread the extra work they would return to. In comparison, only 43 percent of those asked in the US agreed.
South Dakotans are top in the nation for fearing they would lose consideration for a raise or promotion if they took time off.
To compare, about 56 percent of Minnesota workers leave vacation days on the table in 2016. Iowa (53 percent), and North Dakota (47 percent) are closer to the national average (54 percent). Two-thirds of workers in Nebraska didn't take all of their vacation days last year.
