New York, NY (PRWEB) October 17, 2008
The idea of a much needed break from the workweek is one that has sadly slipped from the consciousness of today's over-stressed workers. As Expedia.com's annual Vacation Deprivation survey reports, more than one third of Americans, in fact, will not take all their allotted vacation days this year. The Pocono Mountains Work Relief campaign is trying to change this psychology and encourage overworked employees to buck this trend and assert their right to escape with midweek and weekend value packages ranging from all-inclusive family resorts to intimate bed & breakfast hideaways at http://www.WorkRelief.com.
