Shock, Horror

NEAR HOME, NOT FROM HOME

Yesterday’s Business Day letter column included a letter I wrote in response to transport minister Fikile Mbalula seven options to resolve the e-tolls impasse (“Cabinet to decide on e-tolls in two weeks’ time”,  November 1). I proposed an eighth option.

As I am against working from home except as a stop gap measure, you can imagine my frustration when the Business Day inserted a heading: ‘Working from home will stop road crisis’. It probably will but will introduce a whole lot of other problems which I discuss in this paper. I propose we work from offices close to home. ‘Close’ refers to within walking distance and it is the start of a FUTURE FIT society incorporating the best of modern trends.
