More people than ever before are working from home and a lot of them are using their laptops in BED.
In a recent poll, half of 1,000 workers said they read or respond to work emails from bed. A British study of 329 workers found that nearly 1 in 5 of them spends two to 10 hours a week working from bed.
This is partly because work has become so international. In the November 14th edition of the Wall Street Journal, Sue Shellenbarger quotes one bed worker as saying, "When you work with people all around the world, it is difficult to avoid."
She quotes lawyer David Spiegel his work night ritual helps him "catch up and make sure everything is buttoned up, so I know I’m going into the next day prepared."
