The period of unemployment between being laid off and starting a new job.

The duration of an American Vacation can vary from a few weeks to multiple years.

The term originated as a way of noting the relatively poor vacation time offerings of most American employers. For many overworked Americans, being laid off provides the only significant vacation time they will ever receive.
