28% of Americans Think We Have Too Many Holidays Off

There’s a good chance that you’re working today.  On President’s Day.

But according to a new survey from Rasmussen Reports . . . about one out of four of you are totally cool with heading in to work today, while other people are sleeping late or sitting at home eating three bags of Cheetos.

In the survey, 28% of American adults said that there are too many federal holidays . . . or, in other words, they feel like we get too many holidays off.

13% say there aren’t enough federal holidays . . . and 53% think the number of holidays is about right.  (And, I guess, 6% are undecided.)

 Among government employees, who get EVERY holiday off, only 8% think there are too many holidays.

  Every federal holiday costs approximately $450 MILLION between salary and lost productivity . . . but the people surveyed didn’t get that number quoted to them going in.

  There are 10 federal holidays every year:  New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Day, President’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
