Monday Morning 'Blues' Hit 'Sick' British Workers

A new survey has found that many British workers are not averse to calling in 'sick' on Mondays this year. Their excuses will be sent in by text messages or the typical cough and sputter routine on phone. // The main reason for these stunts is the widespread dissatisfaction with holiday allowance for British workers, who have the reputation of working the longest hours in Europe.

'Early February is a very popular time for taking a 'sickie', the first bank holiday still seems a long way off, the days are gloomy and many people are still feeling the post-Christmas blues,' said Cary Cooper, a professor of organizational psychology and health at Lancaster University and lead researcher of the study. The study was a part of a poll conducted by digital channel Sky Travel and had over 4,000 participants. It showed that 78 percent of the participants were apprehensive of using up their holidays so early in the year and were prepared to wait until spring to take off. It was also found that men and women would be availing at least 'nine sickies' in the year. Women felt they would be able to get more time off than men. 17 percent of the workers would allow others to call in on their behalf, while 28 percent used the cough routine.
