Well, first off, it is very unlikely that you would be able to get a large enough number of people who would feel comfortable employment-wise and money-wise "skipping" a day of work, that it would even register as a blip on the radar of politicians you are trying to make a point to. It's honestly not a very realistic form of protest, if you expect any sort of media coverage necessary to influence politicians.
