The Vermont Senator and Democratic presidential candidate has introduced a bill to require all employers with 15 or more workers to offer two weeks of paid vacation to employees who have worked there for a year or more.
Even part-time workers who work an average of 24 hours a week would be eligible under the legislation.
Labor Department statistics show that while 87% of full-time civilian employees get paid vacation, only 34% of part-time workers get paid vacation. And only 39% of workers making less than $9 an hour get paid vacations, no matter how many hours they work.
