A new survey released Wednesday claims a staggering 14 million Americans will call in sick Monday after Super Bowl LII, taking advantage of one of the biggest “sick days” of the year.

The survey, conducted by the Workforce Institute at Kronos and Mucinex, says those planning on missing work the Monday following the Super Bowl, might want to think of a better excuse than having a “headache.”


“We’ve been researching the Big Game’s effect on the workforce for more than a decade and while numbers may fluctuate each year, one clear fact remains: #SuperSickMonday is often the biggest day in America for calling out of work,” said Joyce Maroney, Executive Director, The Workforce Institute at Kronos Incorporated. source

The numbers of those skipping work could go up, too, because there are actually folks out there who are truly suffering from the flu amid this year’s nasty flu season.
