Skipping Work Super Bowl Monday Costs U.S. Employers Billions

Nearly 14 million people call out ...

February 1, 2019

We all know how difficult it is to wake up Monday morning after the Super Bowl and drag yourself to work! Whether your team wins or loses, work is going to be the last thing you want to do.

Apparently Super Bowl Monday takes a $4.4 billion toll on U.S. employers, with approximately 14 million people calling out of work the day after the Super Bowl. Sick days alone could cost emplyers up to $2.6 billion in productivity losses. Game-related distractions inside the work place could reach $1.7 billion in productvity losses!

I think it's safe to say the best solution for this is to make Super Bowl Monday a national holiday!
