    Should workers accept pay cuts in exchange for working remotely?

    Workers should absolutely not accept pay cuts for working remotely beginning with the very concept of working from home which has morphed from WFH to sleeping at work. Most of my co-workers work longer hours and that's just for starters. Employers save tens of thousands of dollars per employee per year with a remote workforce. Imagine the HR nightmare, working through the terms of a pay cut with an employee is a risky proposition. Sure, there are employees that take advantage of WFH most I would argue are not in that category and then where does it end? Employers should carefully consider the options before going down this road, they should also carefully consider their leases and their utilities, that's where I would start with cuts should they become necessary.
