Apparently people really like working from home. A recent poll says 73% of people surveyed say they would like the ability to continue to work from home after the pandemic. It makes sense: less time commuting, less expense commuting, less childcare, etc. There a lot of advantages. Another survey took it even farther, trying to quantify what the ability to remain working from home is worth. An admittedly non-scientific poll found that given the choice between an employee staying in their current job that allows them to work remotely, versus taking a new job that requires them to be in the office but would pay $30k more, 64% said they would choose the remote option for less money.
