Should The Day After The Super Bowl Be A National Holiday Did you know that the day after the Super Bowl, a reported 10.5 million people called in "sick", and 7.5 million went in to work late? Or that ⅓ of the country watches the biggest sporting event in history, this huge sporting event? People are debating about whether everyone should have off of school and work on February 5th, the day after the Super Bowl. Some people say that their child is just too tired to learn, or that they can’t go to work because they can’t stay awake. Opposers say we have to go, it’s just another Monday to those who don’t watch the Super Bowl, but many people are too tired to go. This is due to people calling out of work, which causes the U.S. losing about 1 billion dollars every year due to the lack of productivity and 16 million kids skip school the day after the Super Bowl, causing more than half of school’s students being out, and the kids who are actually in school are too tired to learn anything.

According to http://www.debate.org/opinions/should-the-super-bowl-be-a-national-holiday, the day after the Super Bowl should be a national holiday and we should have off because so many big buisnesses lose money because barely anyone comes and virtually nothing actually gets done. According to http://www.montgomeryadvertiser.com/story/news/2017/02/03/day-after-super-bowl-16-million-stay-home-super-sick-day/97354572/, this website said, “In 2016, the Workforce Institute suggested 1 in 10 U.S. workers — about 16.5 million employed adults — may have missed work the day after last year's big game.” This is a big problem because if the U.S. loses 1 billion dollars every year the day after the super bowl, in 10 years that’s 10 billion dollars we lose just on one day alone! This is why we should just have off so we don’t lose so much money every

    March Madness alone requires students to miss more than 6 days of class, and the road to NCAA’s championship may require students to miss more than a quarter of the semester. Furthermore, the scheduling of the NCAA also forces students to miss classes on regular basis. With the universities prioritizing the performance of these students on the field over their duties as students, as well as how much revenue is being generated around these athletes, it’s absolutely absurd to consider college sports to be amateur sports. The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) alone, makes a total revenue of 10.6 billion dollars annually (statisticsbrain.com). March Madness alone, generated 1.13 billion dollars in revenue last…

    19% percent of students graduating high school in America are illiterate and 32,000,000 adults can not read. The amount of food waste generated by the US could eradicate world hunger four times over and veterans who have had their legs blown off by IEDS in Afghanistan are waiting ten to fifteen years to receive their benefits after serving this country. Meanwhile, childhood poverty does not exist in Norway. India, France, Russia, and most other industrialized as well as non-industrialized countries have banned genetically modified organisms in their food supply and the UN has recently declared that the United States is in violation of human rights laws by depriving the citizens of Detroit of water while companies like Nestle pump millions of gallons of water out of already drought ridden California to bottle and sell back to the populous. In my opinion, there is much work to be done in America to better America so that it will live up to my vision of America.…
