Americans are already afraid to take vacation days . . . do we have to be afraid to take lunch breaks too? Apparently, we are. A recent survey says:
- Nearly 20% of North American workers worry their bosses won’t think they are hardworking if they take regular lunch breaks, while 13% worry their co-workers will judge them.
- 38% of employees don’t feel encouraged to take a lunch break.
Seems like we're probably right because 22% of North American bosses say that employees who take a regular lunch break are less hardworking. That means there's more than a one-in-five chance your boss is one of them.
Do you take your lunch break or eat at your desk?
