I just got a job in Whitby in the Rossland Rd E area and am commuting from Mississauga (Mavis area). My hours are 8:30AM-4:30PM and sometimes 8AM-4PM. What can I expect in terms of drive time? What time should I leave in the morning? Would a 407 transponder be worth it driving to and from every day?...

So roughly $44,500 is what I make without either of those. These numbers are ALL ...
