Why does "vandaag" have an extra "a"? Compared to, say, "maandag" or just "dag"?

Vandaag was originally vandage at a time when Dutch still had a case system.

Er is used when the people who refers to are indefinite. However, in this sentence it refers to the employees/de werknemers. Hence er is not used.
