Getting to work in the mornings can be a struggle for Angelina Flood.
On a good day, it can take at least an hour for her to drive from the home she and her husband bought in Southborough, Mass., to her job as an editorial assistant in Cambridge, Mass., just outside of Boston.
To avoid the traffic, she gets in at 7 a.m. and works until 3 p.m. three days a week. “The commute is hellish,” Flood, 27, said. “If I liked my job less it would be a big problem.”
