Commutes are free for employers. If those 2 hours lost on the road would be paid, remote work would have been the standard since the 90's.

@MikeVeerman if you move house should the employer pay more? What’s your alternative?

@MikeVeerman @dch At least in california letting cities replace single family homes with multifamily housing would help with commutes. (It'd increase the supply of housing and hopefully reduce prices)
