Summer is here for American workers, and that often means vacation time. Many workers, however, are spending their days off checking work emails, getting bombarded by texts from bosses and answering phone calls from colleagues. A new survey of 2,300 people by online learning platform ELVTR found that about 20% of workers have been asked to check their emails while on vacation. Another 25% get work-related text messages while off.
