Do you commute?
If so, how long is it?Â Thirty minutes?Â An Hour?
This guy commutes more than two hours each way, every day.
As I read the article, I thought, “This guy must be a political consultant or have some highly specialized position that requires him to be in DC.”
Actually, he’s a paralegal.
I realize the wages in the metro DC area are better thanÂ average, but come on.Â Five hours a day, on the road?Â Doesn’t the gas bill offset the higher salary?Â How about the strain on the family?Â If he were knocking down half a million a year for a few years, and then taking a gig closer to home, that’d make sense.
There must be something at-play here that didn’t make the article.
