UK job search engine Workcircle surveyed IT jobseekers to see who will take a sick day to watch England play in the World Cup. 93% of Managers will!

UK job site, Workcircle ran a survey this week asking how likely jobseekers are to take a sick day to watch an England World Cup match.

The results show the deep divide between workers and management, just 14% of Engineers surveyed will take a sickie to watch a match, but a shocking 93% of managers will.

And it gets worse the higher you get – all CEOs and CTOs surveyed will take a day off.

As far as the developers go, Java programmers are the most patriotic – 86% would call in sick to watch a match, compared to 14% of hard-working SQL developers.

So when the boss is in an unexplained long meeting during the World Cup, check if there’s an England match on!
