Bulgarian Employees Lead Western World by Number of Sick Days
Workers in Bulgaria took most time off for health related reasons - 22 days average in 2007. The Portuguese hold the second place, but only with 12 days per year, followed by the Czech Republic with 11 days.
Employees in Turkey, America and Britain are at the bottom of the list with an average of 6 days or less per year.
According to the research, twice as many firms noted a rise in the number of "sick days" taken by staff in recent years than those that had seen an improvement.

My experience of Bulgarian employees has been, frankly, mixed. Those that have studied or worked in "the West" are often as good as any workers you can find anywhere in the world. Those that have only limited or non-existent experience outside the country can be really terrible to work with. Lazy, dishonest, arrogant, unable to work properly, always late, with a sense of entitlement that beggars belief. Not all are like this, but quite often it is the case.
