Monday, October 9 — For many generations, weekday mornings have meant a routine of preparation, and then facing an ever-lengthening commute to work. However, a small but growing number of Americans are not in that situation — and that’s why today begins National Work from Home Week. Available mostly to so-called white-collar occupations, employers all over the country have found that technology has enabled grateful and motivated employees to perform necessary work without their physical presence in an office setting.

There are nearly 159 million civilian workers nationwide. Around 6.3 million, or 4.5 percent, work at least one day per week at home. A reported 30 percent do so while in pajamas. Nearly half of those working exclusively in their homes are self-employed.
