The choice should be pretty blatant to most of us out here who are driven by the allure of a higher salary (we are not talking about an extremely huge difference though, prolly enough to compensate the longer commute?).
However, this article here suggested that one should always choose a shorter commute over a higher salary.
Most commuters reported they spent their travel time thinking about all the activities they'd rather be doing, or all the things they were missing out on because they were stuck in traffic. Decreased leisure time takes a serious toll on a person's well-being.
Rather than try to convince yourself your commute is fun, however, you're probably better off skipping the long commute time altogether--even if it means taking a pay cut. According to researchers at Princeton University, more money isn't likely to improve your life once you earn $75,000 a year.
What are your thoughts? Or do you reckon that this is just bs and one should always take the higher salary option as long as the higher salary outweighs the cons of the commute time?
