The cost was based on an average daily pay of $130(according to the company that did the figuring). If you look at the data from the last census, the mean income in the US is only $23,000 a year, thats less than $130 a day in wages, infact thats about $63 and change a day as a daily wage. Am I looking at something wrong here or missing something? What am I missing? Where are they getting the $130 daily average wage from?

Right, but they are basing all of this on an average daily wage of $130, but according to the census data, the daily wage(based off mean yearly income) is well under half of that guys, but half the daily wage used to figure out how much it was costing companies. Maybe I missed something in the census data or something and I'm looking at the wrong numbers in the census data...

A guy I work with took last night off to go see the movie, afterwards he was going to a star wars costume party. He's in the 30's.

If someone uses leave, that they accrued under their terms of employment, how does that "cost" the company anything???

If the number is higher than the actual paid wage, it could reflect additional costs that the employer may have to pay (health ins for example) to employ said individual. Just a guess.

There is predicted to be a big sick-day so that people that waste their vacation time can still see the movie.

It don't, the whole subject is as silly as those that take off work to see a movie when they could have just waited a couple days.
