How Do New Englanders Feel About Their Commute Counting As Work Hours?
Should your commute count as part of your work hours?
Here are the results of our poll… As you can see, 53% of the respondents said "yes." This came as a surprise to us, as earlier in the day, most people voted "no." In the comments, one person said it is a personal choice where someone wants to live and work. Another person suggested she would intentionally live further away, so she could make more money.
Researchers who conducted a survey published by the Daily Mail concluded that our working hours have extended into our daily commutes. Thus, we should get paid for that time.
