Yahoo! Fuels Fresh Debate on Telecommuting
Telecommuting, a growing trend in the US workplace, is coming under fresh scrutiny following news that Yahoo! is curbing the practice.
The trend of working from home has been gaining steam for decades, as part of a workplace evolution which allows greater family-work balance and saves energy and commuting costs, AFP reported.

"Speed and quality are often sacrificed..." she wrote.
