At the start of the pandemic when lockdowns were implemented, employees were asked overnight to start working from home and it has changed the dynamic of the work environment ever since. Many industries have work that can be done from home, and management and workers have adapted to the change. A majority of employees have enjoyed working from home, not least because it's given them more control of their day, including scheduling work around their home life. As a result, people have been able to spend more time with their families and their kids. Before the pandemic, people were spending a chunk of their time commuting to and from work and this inconvenience was completely eliminated after people started working from home.

Now, with Coronavirus cases drastically reducing some are calling for people to return to work. Some offices have mandated if, while some are being egged on by the government to re-open offices despite work from home working out perfectly for many. “It’s time for America to get back to work and fill our great downtowns again with people,” said President Biden recently. “People working from home can feel safe and begin to return to their offices.” Not everyone was pleased with Biden's comments. 





More and more employees want to continue working from home. One person detailed how work from home has helped us regain control of our lives yet again. They explained how the work from home option had given employees a sense of freedom they deserved but never had. "WFH has allowed people to have more of their lives back. Like, if I start at 8, I don’t need to wake up at 6 am," they broke it down in a viral tweet. "I don’t need to worry about packing lunch because I can make something fresh every day. At 5 pm, I’m finished work with no traffic on the way home. So at 5:01, I actually have real freedom. As long as the work is getting done, what’s the issue? Lmao like WFH has been a blessing for SO many people."

Here are some of the tweets in the thread that vouched for work from home and blamed the real-estate for pushing the workers to return to their buildings:

1. Life just got better



2. WFH while on your period is life-changing



3. Commuting time is labor
