Check it out. Google’s buses a good chunk of its workforce to work everyday for free. And the ride comes complete with leather seats, wireless internet access, computer and mobile alerts for when the bus is late, bike racks, and dogs are allowed.
AND the buses run on biodiesel.
The article also mentions some of the other perks of being an employee: free on-site oil changes, car washes and hair cuts; all-you-can-eat gourmet food, a climbing wall, a volley ball court, swimming pools, free doctor’s checkups.
All without being required by state intervention and all provided better and more efficiently.
