Improve your commute: David Spencer in Guardian article
On 2 December Professor David Spencer, Head of Economics Division, was featured in a Guardian article on tips to make your journey to work more bearable.
In the article entitled ‘Five ways to improve your commute’ Professor Spencer suggests that the perceived time and effort savings generated by working on your way in to the office are likely to be an illusion.
He commented: “The encroachment of work into commute time simply extends the length of the working day, for no extra pay. If we are to use commute time as work time, a radical step then would be to shorten the working day.”
