Waiting For The Cable Guy Cost $40 Billion In 2010

Waiting for technical help at home cost $37.7 billion in 2010.

The survey was conducted by Zogby, at the request of mobile workforce solutions firm TOA Technologies, and looks at both the impact to the national economy and to the individual businesses that force people to wait for their arrival.

Zogby tallied the $37.7 billion per-year figure by interviewing over 1,000 Americans at random about their experiences waiting for in-home service over the past year, finding that 58 percent of respondents had waited for service at their homes in 2011, and that “the annual cost of waiting per individual is equivalent to removing the average American from the workforce for more than two days.”
