More than ten million American workers who plan to watch say they will skip work

One in four employees say they would most want Jon Snow to be their manager

VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – Brace yourself: Absence is coming. A survey from The Workforce Institute at Kronos has found an estimated 27 million workers in the United States say they will stay up late for the long-awaited “Game of Thrones” series finale on Sunday, and that episode could impact job productivity and attendance.

For many people it’s a holiday Monday, but more than ten million American workers who plan to watch say they will skip work so that they can witness who ascends to the Iron Throne and celebrate or cope with the aftermath.

The research also found one in four employees say they would most want Jon Snow to be their manager.
