A man has faced criticism for claiming that remote workers have it easy because they have flexibility and freedom to travel. He posted on Reddit, stating that remote workers have unlimited time off and can go on vacation or visit friends and family while still working. He mentioned that remote workers never have to request time off or take a day off unless they want to disconnect completely from their jobs. The man expressed his envy towards remote workers and stated that they have access to virtually free time off that in-office workers cannot have.
You're free to travel anywhere you want and leave your residence for any length of time... As long as you do your work even remotely (it rarely is a full day's worth of work anyway), you can go on vacation, visit friends or family in a distant place, and so on.
The man explained that remote workers have the freedom to travel and do whatever they want as long as the work gets done. He mentioned that the average worker only has 2-3 weeks of vacation a year, while remote workers can have unlimited time off. He admitted that he yearns for the freedom that remote workers have and wishes he could also pack his bags and go anywhere at a moment's notice. The man believes that working remotely offers a kind of free time off that in-person workers can never access.
Working remotely offers virtually free time off that no in-person worker can ever get access to.
