Last year a survey called "Super Bowl Fever Sidelines Employees on Monday Morning" reported that 1.5 million adults may call in sick the day after the big game. The solution to the productivity loss is so obvious.
Why isn’t the Super Bowl on Saturday? It has spawned websites and a great media debate. There is even a movement for a national holiday replacing President’s Day. If President Obama (a Steelers Fan) wants to throw employers a bone, then he should focus on this problem.
