A survey conducted by global staffing firm Robert Half found that nearly 1 in 4 workers quit a job because of a bad commute. According to the survey, respondents in Chicago, Miami, New York and San Francisco have most often resigned for this reason. A copy of the survey and infographic can be found here.
CoaST Policy Director, Jason Pavluchuk had this to say about the report:
Congestion is having a major impact on our economy and this survey provides additional evidance that we need to address congestion. The Coalition for Smarter Transportation believes that we need to enact policies at all levels of government to support employers providing commute options and provide organizations that work with employers the tools and resources they need.
