Should the Monday after the Super Bowl become a national holiday?

Should the Monday after the Super Bowl become a national holiday?

(WWBT) - It is always hard to get up early Monday morning and head to work. It's worse when it comes right after Super Bowl Sunday.

According to a survey conducted by Robert Half International, 72 percent of the 306 human resource managers that participated want the day after the big game to be a holiday from work.

The organization also surveyed 1,011 employees, and 27 percent often call in sick the next day after a major sporting event. In addition, 32 percent of employees are late to work the next day following the big game.

Last year, Kraft-Heinz gave their employees the day off following the Super Bowl. They started a petition to make the Monday after the Super Bowl a national holiday.

At Heinz we believe in never settling. Never settling with food. And never settling in life.
