The Reason You're Costing Us Billions!

Have you gone into work hungover lately?  

My money is on YES considering the fact that we just had Summerfest!

According to a new study, every drink you have this week costs your company $1.37 because you're doing less work when you're HUNGOVER the next day.  
 
And getting drunk costs our economy about $220 BILLION a year, about $1.90 per drink. 

Here's the breakdown of costs:  
 
1.  72% of the cost is from the decreased productivity of people who show up for work with a HANGOVER.  That's about $158 BILLION . . . or $1.37 per drink.
 
2.  11% . . . or 21 cents a drink . . . is from healthcare costs for alcohol-related health problems.
 
3.  9% . . . or 17 cents a drink . . . is from alcohol-related crime.
 
4.  6% . . . 11 cents a drink . . . is from accidents related to drunk-driving. 

The thing is, I can't beat you up for this, because I'd rather you came in hungover than called in sick everytime!
