30 minute commutes the limit for Czechs

Czech are willing to commute just 30 minutes to their job, according to a new study by Grafton. One fifth of them have to travel longer, however, while one-third of Czech employees are unhappy with their length of their commute. That's an increase of 7 percent, according to the study, which found that two-thirds of their subjects wouldn't be willing to move because of a job. Czechs would be just as willing to travel one hour to a job as they would be to make a 30 minute trip, but only assuming the job paid 20 percent more. Forty percent of the 1,200 respondents to the survey said they'd be willing to move abroad for work, but this would assume being paid more. "Better salaries continue to be an extremely important factor," said Jitka Součková, speaking with aktualne.cz. "People also want to gain new experiences and good work in their sector, which is just as important when it comes to moving because of work."
