    Thumbs up Remote Work Is Poised to Devastate Americas Cities

    Remote Work Is Poised to Devastate Americas Cities - In order to survive, cities must let developers convert office buildings into housing.

    The work from home revolution has been very good for political columnists who like to write shirtless in pajama pants and share too much personal information with their readers. But the phenomenon hasnt been so great for Americas cities.
    The nations office buildings arent as empty as they were before COVID vaccines became widely available in spring 2021. But theyre still far less populated than they were in 2019. A recent analysis of Census Bureau data from the financial site Lending Tree found that 29 percent of Americans were working from home in October 2022. In New York City, financial firms reported that only 56 percent of their employees were in the office on a typical day in September.
    Full-time remote work has grown less prevalent since the worst days of the pandemic. But flexible work arrangements in which employees report to the office a couple times a week are proving stickier. A recent paper from the National Bureau of Economic Research estimated that 30 percent of all full-time workdays would be performed remotely by the end of 2022.
    As Insiders Emil Skandul illustrates in an excellent piece, these surveys and projections are buttressed by mobile phone data showing that, in virtually all major U.S. cities, foot traffic in central business districts is down substantially from 2019.

    If much work is going to stay remote, why would people chose to live in cities? Some will. Enough?

    They want to convince you that living in a city is safe, convenient, cool, healthy and cheaper. None of which is true.

    Right. If you are young, single and not burdened by debt, if your job is in the city I could see living nearby work, and entertainment- it could be fun and no commuting. Add remote working for many, and they don't have a great reason for spending more for much less just so they are close to quality entertainment.

    Good. More open land for those of us who don't prefer the Big City hassle.
    The notion that a radical is one who hates his country is nave and usually idiotic. He is, more likely, one who likes his country more than the rest of us, and is thus more disturbed than the rest of us when he sees it debauched. He is not a bad citizen turning to crime; he is a good citizen driven to despair.

    But people that pay the bills don't want to work in the city, so they certainly do not want to live there.

    That means that the cities will convert these to low income apartments if they want them utilized.

    Let's name them projects or ghettos. Towers that contain people with little to no income. They look good in year 1. Year 2 the crime starts. Year 3 they are moving good people out to save them. Year 4, the cops don't want to go in.

    Then we can tear them down and call that progress.
    Let's go Brandon !!!

    Poor leadership is what is going to sink our larger cities, covid like everything else will just be a convenient excuse. Remember who was in charge when mandates and rules made it difficult for business to be performed, remember who was in charge when chaos was allowed to happen under some made up disguise as protesting! The politicians have played a far larger role in the destruction taken place in our larger cities then any virus has imo.

    I'm all for people wanting to live in big cities, where they pack people into small spaces like breeder chickens. That's a personal choice. But you can't do that and have Democrats operate these cities and expect anything other than a clusterduck.

    San Francisco is on the bottom of the list for good reason: they don't enforce the law. It's the number one city for car break-ins, shoplifting, people defecating on the streets, homelessness, people shooting up in public, violence by blacks against Asians, and so on.
