I tend to agree with you..

BUT I can partially buy a shift allowance for weird shift time employees.... since transport is more expensive at those times...
I agree, IF that allowance was there at inception of employment. Not x years after being employed. If its weird hours, an adult would see how much the salary is, and make a decision based on that if its worth it and if he could make it through a month paying the higher transport fees to get to work.

These people are being coddled. And the very very last thing this country needs is workers that are coddled and not treated like adults.

Need to take the car in anyway due to client meetings + lecturing. But will need to figure out the rest of the week

And it seems that the build of Gautrain users were on the road this morning. Which is understandable as no one wants to take the risk. The roads were chaos (might still be)

False equivalence.
Working from home IS making a plan. Some jobs it's feasible, some it's not. If you're a taxi passenger and it's feasible to work from home, then do it.
I just need a laptop and phone. Also I like how he points out whites.

Yep. Have had people who usually take public transport work from home during taxi strikes. Didn't so much as raise an eyebrow.
