Savage! Yeah, I agree, although I think because my job requires a good command of written English, it won't be getting outsourced to India. But I suggest I am not in a small percentage at all. Quite the contrary. Even people who provide value in the office can be miserable and would be better working from home two-three days a week.
I'm convinced the majority of office workers don't need to be in the office five days. I've yet to see anything in the corporate world to suggest otherwise.
Yes, I agree, most people can get away with 2x a week from home, 3 is pushing it I think. Jobs won’t necessarily be outsourced to India, they can be other parts of Canada, rural USA, who knows . But then a lot of questions arise, down the road 4-5x years from now, who will a company promote, the person coming in 5x a week or 2x a week? Who will a company with an office in downtown Toronto hire? Someone who lives close by and wants to come in 4 days a week or someone in Brampton who will show up once a week?
Also, when we really get into the fine details, it sounds like what youre saying is people don’t need to work 5x a week, which I agree with. We should all work less. Because employers know that when u tell people to come in 3 days a week, those two other days essentially become / feel like days off.
