The Missing Piece In Getting People To Telecommute? Gas Prices

from the and-so-it-goes dept

There have been plenty of stories about how telecommuting has become more popular in the last few years as the technology has reached a level where it really is possible to work at home almost as if you were at work. Still, there have been cultural issues to deal with -- especially the view that telecommuters were slacking off at home. However, it looks like the continually rising gas prices are making telecommuting appear to be much more appealing to many workers -- and some are wondering if it's one of the missing elements in creating a new wave of telecommuting employees.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team
