Cost-cutting is nice but this is going too far:
Employers who require that employees share rooms on business trips.
It's bad enough that you have to travel on business. Security checks, jet lag, lost luggage, cramped airplanes, disrupted exercise routines, and distance from loved ones are part of many a trip.
The hotel room, however humble, becomes a sanctuary; a decompression zone. Forcing employees to share rooms destroys that one area of peace. It's the worse business idea since the cubicle.
