I also have to take late night and early morning calls all the time so I’m not wasting time going to an office only to work remotely anyways.

However, we have new staff we are on boarding, and I acknowledge that working from home is a near impossible steep climb for them and I would have never developed properly if my first 3-5 years weren’t in person. I’ve went in for their benefit and I made it known how bad WFH is for them.


And in college, I started terrified of people and by the end you work with dozens of teams in person and speak/present to the point you just got over it someday for prep for the workforce. Without this, I don’t know how you’d develop interpersonally.
Exactly. And from what I'm seeing of the new crops of graduates coming online, the bolded is a major problem. I can teach people to do the work but I can't teach them how to function in life.

I didn't even think about it until I started seeing what people were like without the fromative experiences I had simply as a matter of course.

"Productivity" is a result of burning oil. We have reached peak global oil production, so expect productivity to continue an indefinite decline.

If only we could generate energy from your pessimism. It's an inexhaustible resource.

People want more money. Sure there are other factors anything from commute to career advancement to how much the work sucks, but paternity leave? Come on.
I don't understand what you're saying here. Do fathers not matter as well as mothers? Do they not need time to bond with their newborn children? I'm lost as to what issue you would have with this as a person living in France when most French working men have guaranteed paid paternity leave.

I never made a statement about whether fathers matter as much as mothers. I have no issue with this.

I was doubting your implication paternity rights are important to American workers, I'd be surprised if more than a tiny minority of workers would have it on a list of things important to them about a certain job.

We all feel it wherever we go wherever we turn there is somebody new somebody inferior or just people missing from their jobs. Almost every industry good/service has been impacted by the great resignation. Those that left their jobs were highly valuable and those that have replaced them demand more wages and produce far less or at least to a lessor quality.

The global society will find solutions. The US continues to the lead the way with innovations in science, technology, engineering and medicine. However others, such as Korea and China, are rapidly gaining ground, prioritizing the development of their knowledge base, and committing substantial financial resources to becoming leading nations of innovation and productivity. Hopefully this competition will wake up those sitting on the sidelines in our own country, emphasize the value of true knowledge and skills, and reward those willing to work hard again. An educated, contributing, and productive citizenship is the foundation of our society.

Wages decoupled from productivity a while ago. No fair labor compensation, no worky.
