17 million workers are expected to call in ‘sick’ on Super Bowl Monday

It’s called “Super Bowl Fever,” with no specific cause, although too much beer, too much dip, too much fun are suspected culprits.

It is expected to keep 17 million people home ‘sick’ from work Monday.

That’s according to a survey commissioned by The Workforce Institute at Kronos Incorporated.

The cost of productivity loss could top $4 billion.

That’s according to an estimate by Challenger, Gray & Christmas. That includes time people spend gabbing about Tom Brady’s performance on the field, combined with those who do choose to stay home from work.
