We've got the results of two surveys here, just in time for Labor Day, and they make one thing clear. Your work is about to suffer because of Labor Day . . . and your Labor Day is about to suffer because of work.

According to one new survey, commissioned by Red Bull, 48% of people in the U.S. admit their productivity goes DOWN right before a long holiday weekend.

In other words, half the people in your office are about to start mailing it in because Labor Day is coming.

But work will get its revenge. Another survey found that the average person will get a SINKING FEELING around on Labor Day . . . or any other holiday . . . when the reality hits that you have to go back to work the next day.

Only 11% of people say they stay HAPPY until on a day off. Everyone else gets bummed out before then. (PR Newswire / Cambridge News)
