Last week’s poll asked whether public employees should be subjected to more frequent drug testing. While most people voted “No”, the voting was fairly close. There was some really excellent discussion with some believing that the public sector should have more control over the firing of employees for poor performance which may have been caused by drug abuse.
This week’s poll comes because the new job I took a few months ago has required me to do some more traveling for work. I went to SAS Global Forum in Orlando a few weeks back and I have two trips (one day and one week) coming up. I always enjoyed intermittent travel for work but with a growing family I am not enjoying it nearly as much as I once did. I talked to a friend on Friday who went to Chicago for about 24 hours and spent most of his time in the airport. He noted that he hates traveling for work. So I wonder what you all think about it.
Are you a fan of traveling for work? Do you prefer a lot, a little, or no travel? Does it all depend on location? Does it depend on the reason why you’re traveling for work (conference as opposed to meetings)? Do you avoid jobs that require travel? Whatever you have to say about this one vote on the sidebar and then comment on below. After you do both of those things feel free to check out our expired polls in the archive or read through the previous posts about polls here.
