Their precise argument is straight up ridiculous and insulting.
As a foundation for the argument, the financial institution says working from home is financially rewarding because of “direct financial savings” on bills resembling commuting, garments and lunches, in addition to oblique financial savings from issues like decreased work-associated socializing and laundry.
“Hey they might save some money on lunch if they work from home, better make sure we claw that back!“
I wager they do not lengthen the identical logic to when a state of affairs may cost an worker extra cash. Like possibly folks working from home needed to improve their web plan, or have to purchase their very own printer cartridges, or have increased electrical energy payments. But nah fuck it, “these there’s a potential scenario where some of these employees might save a couple bucks of their own salary, we can’t have that.”
