Q1). サルマンズによると、あまりに多くのアメリカ人がいまだに、何を目的と見なしていますか。
Salmans says, “You know, too many Americans still see work as an end in itself.”

McMillan says, ” They’re reassessing their life priorities, focusing less on pay and more on having a balanced lifestyle.”

take fewer sick days 病欠する日が減る
Use fewer holidays that are allocated for an employee being sick. Such as, we’re allowed to take 10 sick days in addition to our regular paid holidays. And when we tell our employer that we can’t work due to illness, we call in sick. You might say, “I had a bad stomachache last week, so I called in sick one day.” Or, to a coworker, “Ah, Jason’s out sick today. But he’ll probably be here tomorrow.”
