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 Cynical me:
Or force workers to live on "campus". Hackernews obviously thinks about "knowledge-workders" when crafting such a comment.
But what about factory-workers? Farm-labour? When the workers have little or no rights, they'll be forced to do whatever saves the employers' most; if that means being forced to sleep in barracks: that's what will happen.
