    Does anyone one know the status of FX summer break?  I am number one on a list to get an Impact and have been there for over a month now.  The dealer I spoke to doesn’t know exactly when the break is over or when production will resume.  Maybe someone out there does, I would appreciate any info.

    I met someone from Sweden while on vacation a while ago. He told me that people took 4 week summer vacations from work there and he thought it was terrible that I only got 5 weeks paid vacation (I lived in England at the time). It made me want to move there.

    and why let a 6 month backlog of orders spoil a perfectly good tradition. 

    As annoying as as it must be to wait so long, part of you knows that they live right and we don’t.

    So true! They do have it right compared to us here.  Plus after a good break like makes for better and more productive employees.

    This is why the American work force is so much more productive.  Shutting down your entire production for the length of the summer is a poor business decision.  You rotate employees in and out and make sure they take vacation in a staggered way so production keeps going.

    Many Europeans take the month of August for a summer vacation.

Not sure that’s true. There are a number of countries which are more productive than America. Switzerland is, apparently, the most productive country in the world and their government mandates a minimum of five weeks paid vacation. 

    The Swedes are only slightly less productive but they have that 6 hour work day thing. They are much happier people too (according to the internet which is never wrong). Work-life-balance and family is important to them. Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland are some of the wealthiest countries in the world and have some of the highest living standards. They really do very well for themselves and make some great products.
