WFH has to be one of the greenest policies around. Very interesting to see liberals so opposed to it...

I'm left center, and I greatly prefer it or maybe 2 days a week in the office AS needed. I know I'm far more productive from home. Imagine a job where, when you are in the office, you are way too close to the next person (great if you are immune compromised, have lung issues...), and where the people you are near, part of HR, are ALWAYS loudly chit chatting while you are on conference calls, vendor calls, or hip deep in a spreadsheet. Only reason for liberals to support being on premises is that local vendors get more work, for instance more people eating at food carts and the like. But the 4 hour round trip (maybe a bit faster if I was using ESA) is painful, lousy for productivity, the LIRR diesels belch smoke like a coal burner (between breakdowns), plus the drive to the station... And working in Manhattan costs a fortune - breakfast, lunch are expensive, plus the subway (unless you can avoid that). I used to use the M4 bus to get from Penn to my office, than NYCDOT and TA decided it no longer needed to be near Penn, to just end in the middle of a midtown block not close to other transportation. So that forced a lot of people off of buses, probably into UBER's or the like.
So why would 'liberals' like this?
