Covid is taking us down this road with the complimentary work-from-home trial the past year. Just wait until no more openings are available in SEA or SFO. All new headcount will be remote employees in Sheboyganville with the prevailing cost of living adjusted accordingly. Worried about productivity?? They can get 2x or 3x the headcount for the same price, so who cares if they are slackers at home. We'll weed them out eventually in any case.
