OK, forget Halloween for a second. You want to know what’s scary in Seattle these days? Try on this new report about how long and stressful the daily commute is for a lot of people.
The staffing firm Robert Half revealed the results of its latest survey of workers in 27 major U.S. cities and found that Seattle ranks No. 6 in terms of average daily commute. Workers spend an average of 54.22 minutes commuting to and from work in Seattle each day. That’s about five minutes higher than the national average of 49.1 minutes.
