Great comment on HN:
> As a thought experiment, what if companies are made to pay for commute time? How would that change the labour market? Would they hire local? Provide better transportation? Work with cities to reduce congestion? Encourage more remote work? Decide it's too expensive to hire workers and cut hours? Work towards more inclusive housing?
@cadadr @kensanata I would like to see pressure on employers to reduce /car/ commuting, but converting the commute to paid time for all workers is too blunt of an instrument. But suppose we impose the commute time cost on employers of sole (non-carpooling) non-handicapped car drivers? I'd probably endorse that.
