VA Transportation Secretary Says They Can't Fix The Roads So People Should Work From Home

I'm going to ask Virginia's Transportation Secretary to put in a call to my boss. That's because he says the physical and financial limits of building and maintaining roads provide a good argument for working from home.

Sean Connaughton says the state doesn't have the money or the physical ability to expand the system anymore and that’s why telework is such an important part of the future.

Since we're hearing this all over the country, I think it could apply in our state as well. And particularly to my job. Here's the article in case you want to run it by your boss.
