Staying home can be a good thing

I can't remember people ever being asked to work from home on so large a scale as we're seeing now, and I hope it's a tipping point. A lot of people's jobs can be done from home but aren't, probably mainly due to distrust of employees and the investment made in the office space. Maybe a lot more people can work from home going forward. What if there were a lot less people on the roads every day? What if the demand for office space dipped so much that a lot of the space devoted to it could be converted to much-needed affordable housing for the people whose jobs are nearby and can't be done remotely? It's exciting to think about.

And I get it, a lot of people have to work on site and many even want to. No need to mention it, this post isn't about you. The way everything is set up is centered around you, though, and always has been.
