New York Post Online Edition: 'STAR WARS' SICKOUT IN THE WORKS FOR OPENER

New York Post Online Edition: 'STAR WARS' SICKOUT IN THE WORKS FOR OPENER: "The Force will not be with American businesses next week when the new 'Star Wars' flick opens.
Employers are expected to see a dramatic spike in absenteeism as workers play hooky to see 'Star Wars: Episode III -- Revenge of the Sith,' when it opens May 19, according to a new report.
That loss of productivity could cost employers as much as $627 million in the first two days that the picture -- the last installment of the epic sci-fi series -- hits theaters. "
