If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
It's not for everybody. My grades suffered when I went to school online, because there was always something going on, always something else to do other than do my homework. Now that I am in a traditional classroom, my grades are much better.

That's 55 a day times 20 trips in a 4 week month. Is 1,100 miles of driving, 40 hours of my life and 60-80 dollars in gas saved monthly. Couple that with I eat better, healthier and cheaper at home...

My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
There are benefits to employers too, but they come with some risks, so maybe some kind of tax incentive could encourage businesses to adopt telecommuting practices sooner. I think it will happen on its own anyway though.

Encouraged in any way possible.
And also, when a participant is not fulfilling their job properly, the option rescinded or person fired.
Such people ruin it for the rest of us.
I've been so fortunate the past 2 yrs to be able to work remote almost totally and it's been fantastic. Yet we constantly have to make sure we do more than 100% and are scrupulous in our work and time management....because many companies and teams within companies...are looking for excuses not to support telecommuting. The distrust of centuries of "Puritan work ethic" and lazy/incompetant worker abuse is a big hurdle to overcome.
Flexible scheduling (start/end times) has created a huge rush hour....Lots of traffic for several hours morning and evening. Flex scheduling is good but again...now commute times are less concentrated around 9 and 5 and last for hrs.
