American Business During the Early 2020s

American businesses two years ago: “We just don’t think remote work is feasible. Just wouldn’t work. Reasons.”

American businesses one year ago: “Wow, look at how quickly we converted into full remote-work! Aren’t we amazing??”

American businesses one month ago: “Okay, everyone come back into the office. If we can’t see butts in seats, how can we be sure you’re even working?”

American businesses, this week: “okay… you can work at home a little longer”

(Context: May 12 2021 was the week of pipeline attacks and gas shortages in the US. One year before this? Lockdowns and COVID.)
