Should Your Commute Count as Part of Your Work Hours?

Quite a few of us have to commute to get to work. Wouldn’t it be great if we could log our time spent in traffic on our time sheet?!

I mean it is part of our job to get to work unless you have the luxury of working from home. If you answer a work email from your boss while you’re sitting on BART or take care of whatever they ask you for, should you log that down?

A recent study asked this question and according to the scientists behind it the answer is….YES. Apparently, we should be getting paid for our commute.

There are some people who are not in favor of this though. They say that if we were paid for our commute our bosses would EXPECT us to get this done during.
