• Kraft Heinz wants day after Super Bowl to be national holiday

    Updated:
    PITTSBURGH - Kraft Heinz Company has decided not to make a splashy Super Bowl commercial this year and is giving all its salaried workers Monday after the game as a vacation day instead.
     
    The company made a promotional video as part of its campaign to make the Monday after the Super Bowl a national holiday.
     
    Calling the proposed holiday "Smunday," the company has started a petition on Change.org.  If more than 100,000 people sign the Smunday petition, it will be delivered to Congress.  
     
    A Kraft Heinz Company spokesperson said thousands of employees will get to enjoy the day off, but its factories will still be operating on Monday.
