For the mobility victims amongst us


When Frank moved to the information office in Vienna seven years ago, he decided to stay there for good. His wife had never been able to find a job in Brussels and she had always wanted to return to her home country. But then came mobility, and with it endless discussions at home. Would they sell off the house and move back to Brussels? It made no sense to do that. Finally, they decided that he would commute.

Now he travels back and forth every week. At the beginning it worked, but nowadays he feels frustrated and powerless whenever his son calls to ask for help with his homework. He wishes he could spend more quality time with his family. If only he could use his overtime from evening events to leave earlier for home! Or at least it would help if he could telework on Friday mornings from Vienna.
