More than 16 million people are expected to call in sick or show up to work late the day after the Super Bowl. Kraft Heinz wants you to stop wasting a sick day.

The food company is giving all of its salaried employees the day off of work Monday. In addition, they have started an online campaign to permanently make the Monday after the Super Bowl a national holiday.

The petition, which calls the holiday “Smunday,” currently has more than 67,000 signatures. If the petition gets over 100,000 supporters, Kraft Heinz will send it to Congress.
