One in 10 of the duvet generation feign illness to avoid work
London, Sept 3 (ANI): A new study has suggested that young people are 10 times more prone to feigning illness in order to avoid work than their older counterparts.
A poll by the Department for Work and Pensions suggested that while one in ten aged between 16 and 34 admitted pretending illness to avoid going to work at least once in a year, only 1 percent of those between 55 and 65 said they had done so.
In the middle group, staff aged 35 to 54, 5 percent confessed to nabbing a so-called duvet day.
While the most common reason behind such pretension was to force "an extra day's holiday", followed by having a hangover or relationship problems, many said they simply "did not feel like going into work".
The survey of almost 3,000 people found that 8 percent of men had pulled a sickie, compared with 5 percent of women. (ANI)
