The percentage of US workers with paid leave has been increasing at a modest rate. As per the data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, it has come to know that there is a 10% increase in the paid-time-off in the US over the last seven years. Through the data available, it has been found that during the session 2017-18,  an average of 66% of “wage and salary” workers had access to paid leave which was about 60% in 2011.

According to BLS, the measures of leave only apply to a person’s sole or main job. And the number of paid sick leave simply indicates the increased use of preventive health care services by the US workers. Other than this, many other facts have been revealed by the BLS data. It highlights that workers in management, business, and financial operations accounted for the highest access to paid leave. On the other hand, workers enrolled in construction and extraction and service occupations least applied for paid leave.

On average, a total of 93% of workers have been accessing the facility of paid or unpaid leave. In addition to this, it has been found that the percentage of public sector workers opting for paid leave are more in number than the private sector workers. The statistics show that 79% of public sector workers had opted for paid leave whereas this number stands at 63% for private-sector workers.

The BLS data also shows that about 9% of workers didn’t apply for paid leave due to high work pressure and the fear of negative employment consequences. Similar to workers, the number of US students writing leave application for school due to medical reasons has also increased significantly over the last seven years.
