Make the Monday after the "Big Game" a National Holiday!
At Heinz we believe in never settling. Never settling with food. And never settling in life.
We can all agree that going to work the Monday after the “Big Game” on Sunday is awful. So as far as we’re concerned at Heinz, we as a nation should stop settling for it being the worst work day of the year. We don’t settle for that awesome football Sunday to be just like every other day of the year. No. We eat. We drink. And we be merry, having the tastiest times of our lives. But then the very next day we settle for that Monday being a terrible work day.
Statistics show over 16 million people call in sick or just don’t show up to work. And for those that do, productivity plummets so far that the country loses on average around $1 billion (true story). Enough with the madness. This is where YOU come in.
Sign the petition to make the day after the Big Game a National Holiday. Share it with friends, family and even strangers and get THEM to sign it. If we get over 100,000 signatures, it will be sent to Congress.
If we can make Big Game Sunday awesome, we can make the Monday after awesome too. Make that Monday more like Sunday. Make it a SMUNDAY and have more Sunday on your Monday than any of us have ever had in our lives. Don’t settle. Sign it. For your sanity. For your family. For your country.
Dear Members of Congress,
We hope this message finds you well and that you’ll seriously consider our petition to make SMUNDAY, the day after the Big Game, an official national holiday.
This is a genuine attempt, supported by the Heinz brand and nearly 70,000 others, to make this dream a reality. As you probably know, every year over 16 million people in the US just don’t show up to work the day after the Big Game. Those who do are so worn out from the night before that productivity plummets and the country loses on average of around $1 billion.
We were inspired by a conversation that we know everyone watching the game is already having during the third quarter. And we believe it is our duty to “Never Settle” and make this idea a reality for the American people.
So we ask that you take this proposal seriously, and look at it through the lens of what would be in the best interest of the American public, the overall economy and the spirit of our great nation.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
The Heinz Brand Family
