Research Finds Texans Would Rather Take Pay Cut to Work From Home
Some Texans are getting pretty comfortable working from home.
According to a report from CBS Austin, Texas workers would prefer to take a pay cut to continue working from home rather then head back in to the office. Personally, I like money, so I'd rather keep my full check and go to the office.
The survey from RealBusinessSavings.com, shows that 60% of Americans believe that they are more productive from home. While many had a rough start adjusting, I think that people are starting to get the hang of it all.
Plus you wouldn't have to worry about that daily commute, and you could even save a little cash by missing out on those office lunches.
The survey found that the average Texas worker would be willing to lose $278.15 to continue working from home. I, on the other hand, am flipping out looking at that figure. I mean, that's a car payment right there, and I very much like having a car.
I think employers would definitely be open to the idea of employees remaining at home. I mean, think about the money they would save on water and electricity alone if there were fewer people at the office.
Would you be willing to take a pay cut to remain working from home? Are you an essential worker who never got the opportunity to work remotely?
