With companies losing billions of dollars from workers calling in "sick," it's pointless to even open up shop. The Super Bowl is an annual celebration many Americans take part in. Expecting them to be productive the day after is unfair. The key to a good business is a happy and productive workforce.
If companies want happy workers, they should allow their employees to recover after a game that nearly a third of the United States watches. Let's make the day after the Super Bowl a federal holiday!
Do people really want to take a day off after *watching* a game? That is new level lazy, folks. The Super Bowl is just a football game.
Just because people decided to make poor decisions regarding alcohol and food consumption doesn't mean they should not be held accountable. Maybe instead of having that extra greasy sausage or beverage, you could show a little self-control. Production shouldn't be sacrificed because of bad choices. Get off your butt and work.
Not only that, the government loses about $200 million a day on federal holidays. There is no way the government is sacrificing that because of football.
