I have just joined this site within the last 24 hours and find it astonishing that there has been "NO" mention of liberating the work force?
I worked and lived in the DC area for 40 years and since the invention of the PC and internet connectivity, find it hard to believe that all these millions of people sit in traffic for hours on end to sit in front of a PC, connected to the same internet as in their homes.
"WHY" do we continue to do this???? Lets just forget about the millions of barrels of oil we could save, our time spent traveling to and from, the fact that the more fuel we consume the higher the prices paid for things like FOOD, the more our employer has to shell out to provide you with a conditioned work space in which effects how much they can pay you, etc, etc.
As long as we all can get together and shoot the poop at the coffee pot about non work related items, wasting company productivity, etc. Makes it all worth while, wasting all these resources, right???
I would like to suggest to all of you here, Congress, our local leaders, etc. that congress puts forth a bill that would give the business owner an incentive for liberating their work force, just makes sense to me at least……
