"Many families will be cutting back on gift purchases this season due to reduced hours at work or on the job."

Possible justification: People who are employed away from home spend hours physically "at work," while those who work from home spend their hours "on the job."

===================================

Judging by the huge number of people who post on these boards from work, being at work has absolutely nothing to do with being on the job.
