Star Wars: The Last Jedi … a $1-billion hit to worker productivity?!

Bloomberg BNA published an article today predicting the much-awaited release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi might result in so many employees missing work that “lost productivity could exceed $1 billion.” In fact, the article reports if workers take “the entire day off” to see the movie, the impact will be closer to $1.4 billion. However, the article suggests the hit to productivity may net out against future productivity gains because “allowing workers to take that time off can do wonders for employee morale.”
