I am from the Raleigh area originally, but I have been in DC for the last 5 years and the people in Raleigh are spoiled. People here have an hour plus commute on the daily. The only difference is, an hour commute here is roughly 8-10 miles. I know numerous people who have to drive, ride a train, and a bus just to get to work, averaging 12 hour days including their commute. People have to slug, which means they drive from their homes to a meet up point and ride with other commuters to the closest train station and then ride several trains to get to work and do it all over again in the evening. Most people have to be out of the door by 5am just to get to work by 7am or 8am. I moved just to be closer to my job because I'd have to drive from Md to DC to Northern Va, which is only 8 miles, but it took over an hour. People need to realize that in order to fulfil a job, you have to make sacrifices. If you do not want to travel, others will. Here in the DC metro area, it is very common. I do not know anyone who has a commute less than an hour.
