✅ Success Story BREAKING: Cleveland REI workers went on strike this morning, and just hours later the company agreed to all of their demands. Strikes work.
Tell me if I'm missing something, but how is it not a basic duty of the employer to pay for the time and cost of their employees' commute to work? This isn't personal time, this is time and money exclusively lost for the sake of the company. Why aren't hourly rates counted for this time? And gas expenses as well.
If they had to, maybe companies would invest more in various forms of efficient public transport, which would reduce overall spending and gas emissions in this critical time. Maybe there would be more push to lower housing prices for people to afford to live near their workplace.
The responsibility for commute should be on employers, not employees. It's daylight robbery and I'm surprised employers are just universally getting away with it.

"Taft explained that the great issue in this campaign is 'creeping socialism.'
Now that is the patented trademark of the special interest lobbies.
Socialism is a scare word they have hurled at every advance the people have made in the last 20 years.
Socialism is what they called public power. Socialism is what they called social security.
Socialism is what they called farm price supports.
Socialism is what they called bank deposit insurance.
Socialism is what they called the growth of free and independent labor organizations.
Socialism is their name for almost anything that helps all the people.
When the Republican candidate inscribes the slogan "Down With Socialism" on the banner of his "great crusade," that is really not what he means at all.
What he really means is "Down with Progress--down with Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal," and "down with Harry Truman's fair Deal." That's all he means."

My bargaining unit is very wide & we are office workers. We have secretaries, accountants, customer service & attorneys all in the bargaining unit. The higher up employees say the union is looking out more for the lower employees & the lower employees say the union is favoring the higher up employees. Has anyone else been in a situation like this or have any thoughts?
