This is a great idea from someone who is probably quite young. Good for some
serious thinking!Unfortunately, though, there are a lot of jobs that
won't work that way. It's hard for a cashier in a grocery store to
check purchases from home. Or a guy who changes tires at Big O to balance a
tire in his bedroom.But there still are a lot of other jobs for
which this could work.So congratulations, young man or woman, for
trying to find an answer.
Electric or over 30 mph per gallon vehicles on inversion days.
Why not have trax start it's services earlier and run later and run more
frequently. To use public transportation it adds 1 to 2 hours to the commute.
So make it more available.
Thanks to Hunter for a great idea. We need more young people like him.The time has come to sell only California compliant cars in Utah. California
emissions standards have helped to reduce air pollution there, and they would
help here, too. We also need mandatory smog testing on cars in all
29 of Utah's counties. Too many SL County residents have their cars tested
in rural counties to avoid the SL emissions test because they won't pass.
This is easy to do using a PO Box or a friend or relative's address.
Excellent idea. Forward thinking companies around the country already allow
telecommuting at least some of the time. Some companies don't even have
offices, and everyone works from home all of the time. They use email, instant
messaging, and video conferencing to create a virtual office.
Teleworking is a trade-union scam.Government employee unions have
been pushing it as their number one issue in DC for years, and many federal
offices there have been forced to implement it.Traffic and pollution
haven't improved a bit. Parking is as bad as it's ever been. But many
thousands of government "workers" get a paid day off, once or more a
week.All that's been reduced are worker productivity and
child-care costs, while the cost of government skyrockets.
