Millions Call in Sick After the Super Bowl
I don't know who decided to have the Super Bowl on a Sunday, but I think it would be safe to say that it was a bad idea, and that millions of people would agree with me. Why? Because after all the food, friends and partying on game day, we still have to go to work the next day!
According to The Workforce Institute, approximately 16 million Americans will call in sick the day after the Super Bowl, and around 7 million more will end up coming in late. These numbers do not include the people who took the day off in advance.
Kraft-Heinz stepped up this year, creating 'Smunday.' This year on Monday after the big game, they gave their employees the day off. They also created an online petition to make the day after the Bowl an official holiday. I'll be the first to say that I'm not completely opposed to the idea.
What do you think of the petition? Do you have a hard time going to work the day after The Super Bowl?
