Word on the Street: Vacation days

A recent study shows that people are taking fewer vacation days.



The report by Oxford Economics found that employees took an average of 16 days of vacation last year, compared to around 20 days back in 2000.



In total, workers gave up more than $52 billion in time-off benefits last year.



News 12 hit the street to find out if residents are following the trend.
