Super Sick Monday

Surveys say about 14 million people will be using the same excuse to take off of work this Monday.  The Workforce Institute at Kronos and Mucinex estimated that 13.9 million Americans will call out sick on Monday after the Super Bowl, making it the biggest sick day of the year.

"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.

Even 72% of human resource managers agree the day should be designated a holiday.

The numbers may possibly go up because of the severity of the flu season this year.

So the moral of this post is to be more creative.  Don’t call out sick Monday with excuses like a sore throat, fever, or headache.  Those are the most common excuses.  Of course, if you are actually sick, please do stay home.

Remember, having health insurance is crucial, especially during times when you are sick.  Medical bills can pile up quick and having coverage will keep your premiums low and costs low. Contact Cosmo today. 732-363-3888.
