Bureau of Labor Statistics Reports that 24% of those Employed Work at Least “Some” Hours From Home Each Week

According to the monthly labor review, employees are doing more telecommuting and working from their home office.

Those in favor of working from home see this as a way to give working mothers a way to stay competitive and narrow the wage gap between their male counterparts. With only a quarter of the workforce working from home, some mothers may be forced to use creative means when looking for a position that will allow them to work from home. One of the easiest places to start the search, is to look for stay at home mom jobs that are available online.

Proponents of the work from home revolution state some obvious environmental benefits of telecommuting. Less wasted time used traveling to the office, cuts down on traffic congestion and energy consumption.
