I live in WV but recently accepeted a job at LTC facility in PA. Living very close to PA/WV state line I did not see this as a huge issue. Becuase after searching for work in my town and surrouding towns for 8 months and not finding squat for employment I was out of options. It's a 23 mile drive one way to my new job. It takes me about 30-35 minutes to get there and that is after working my way thru numerous stop lights to get out of town and stopping to pay the toll if I take that route. My mother is pi**ed that I am driving 23 miles one way, even tho I am 28 I still respect my mother and I understand her fears for me driving that distance after working a afternoon shift. I don't even live at home. LOL. I've tried explaining to her that there are no jobs where I live, unless I want to work at a doctors office and the drs offices around here do not pay anything. I would be making 7 dollars less and hour if I took a job in a physicians office here. Personally I don't see 23 miles as that huge of a commute if I will be making good money. Am I wrong? How far do some of you travel to get to and from work?
