TUC in 'saying something nice about its class enemies shocker'

Yes, really.

Not that the figures it is looking at exactly come as a surprise:

"Workers in well paid jobs such as managers and senior officials (68.6 minutes) and professionals (61.4 minutes) have the longest commute times while those in low paid occupations such as cleaners and labourers (40.4 minutes) and retail and customer services (41.4 minutes) have the shortest commutes.
Employees working part-time have shorter average commute times than full-time workers. Men working full-time spend 60.4 minutes commuting compared to 42 minutes for men working part-time. Women working full-time spend 52.8 minutes travelling to work compared to 38.6 minutes for women working part-time....Gender [men, is what he means], pay [high earners] and the amount of hours worked [by white collar workers] all affect average commute times. It seems the more you earn, the longer you have to travel to earn it"

Well knock me down with the proverbial.
