Small Business is our Business

College educated workers are more likely to work from home than nearly any other group.  Having a bachelor’s degree is the quickest route to a workday at home.  Data from the U.S. Census Bureau finds the number of at-home workers rose from 9.2 million in 1997 to 13.4 million in 2010.  Self -employed workers are nearly three times more likely to work at home than those on salary.
