Everyone knows that the cost of commuting can be prohibitive to many small businesses, but are you aware of exactly how much it costs you on an annual basis?
This infographic (based on US data) reveals how much the average person will spend on their annual commute. It shows that if the person is earning the minimum wage, once you factor in the cost of commuting then they actually earn $2+ less every single hour.
That’s a depressing statistic and it just gets worse if you are part of a couple who commutes because those figures will be doubled.
Take a look at the infographic below and it might make you start to think twice about the whole concept of commuting.
