Traveling to make a living
American workers are facing a longer work day, not in terms of hours spent on the clock, but hours spent getting to and from work.
According to a new report released by the Census Bureau, 600,000 American workers travel at least 90 minutes and 50 miles or more to get to work, and 10.8 million travel at least an hour each way.
The average one-way daily commute for workers across the country is 25.5 minutes, and one in four commuters leave their county to work. The percentage of workers who have to leave their home county is growing. About 27.4 percent of all U.S. workers traveled outside the county where they live for work during a typical week, compared with 26.7 percent in 2000.
