• Swap the two first words around and you would make a great politician've got my vote :o)
  • If they did I would get a job 4 hours away, show up and then leave. and get paid for a full 8 hours.
  • Unless they are traveling on the job..Yes they should
  • If you want a lot of small businesses to go out of business and have many more unemployed people.
  • See my answer at
  • Yes, I have to work to pay bills, like everyone else, and I don't see why I should pay to get there and back, I don't do it for fun :-)
  • That depends.. Did you apply for, and accept, that position knowing full well that you would have to commute everyday? That sounds like a choice you made. The employer didn't make you drive that far to find a job, why should they pay you to drive (or ride the bus, train, etc) to and from work? Or - did you get hired nearby your house, and then get transferred to an office further away? This situation might make me want the employer to pay for commute time - but not if you agreed to possible relocation when you were hired. If you can't (or don't want to) commute - then you either need to find a new job, or find a new home.
  • I think most employers would say move closer or ride a bike.
  • Should your employer buy your lunch and wipe your butt after taking a poop as well? Blow your nose? Check your kid's homework? The commute is your time. Suck it up.
  • No, as it is our choice how far we live from work. It's not fair for them to pay if I live 60 miles away and drive a huge SUV.
  • I would love to! But of course they wouldn't.
