And would this not further exacerbate the labor shortages?, or would we be allowing more mass immigration for cheaper labor?.
Socialism is an economic theory just giving money to people does not make it Socialism in fact you can give a Basic Income in Capitalism to it is just a program in these economic systems.

I'm guessing that graph includes unemployment. Would explain the spike in 2008-11 and 2020. Probably also includes the demographic weight of the Boomers hitting SS and Medicare age.

By "many" you mean like the top 5-10% of them. Median salary for people aged under 35 is between 30k and 50k per year. https://smartasset.com/retirement/th...-salary-by-age

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.
Why were you terrified of people in college? Most people work with their fellow students in elementary school through high school. They give multiple speeches and presentations especially in high school.

Many people have been remote employees for decades. Many have never been in an office. Somehow they have figured out interpersonal communication.

I had more social anxiety than most but it’s also intimidating coming into companies and interacting with high level people at first when they’ve done the work longer than you’ve been alive in some cases. It’s harder to come from a smaller town and moving to a large metro area.

I’m just saying it’s all things to work through, and that’s harder for some than others.

If you’re pure remote from the jump, do you really get the same side by side interaction? I had 5-8 solid years of face to face development in my field before working remotely became more accepted.

Sometimes in life you have to be the go getter. After watching people work remotely for many years - long before Covid - I realized that you have to self advocate. You have to make yourself known. You have to do that in an office setting as well. Just make sure you're known for providing high quality work and not the highest number of smoke breaks or other negative imagery.

There will always be someone who has worked doing xyz longer than you. Many of us are from small towns. We didn't let that hold us back.

You’re giving me advice for something I don’t need advice for. I’m not 17 or 22 anymore.

I knew this would happen after the Return to Office fiascos from Megalomaniac Boomer Execs...

Now job automation and outsourcing to India will probably pick up again in earnest...

Younger Generations want to be judged by results and not the popularity contest. I left the big F500 for exactly that reason. I'm not going to sit around and have my paycheck be determined by how much a person I don't even directly work with likes me outside of work. Antiquated and completely nonsensical in this new pathogenic era.

So how is the younger generation accomplishing that goal? You left the F500 but how is it you're getting ahead without self-promotion?
