The remote-work revolution is morphing into a perk for the wealthiest, most educated workers
Briefly

Remote work has become a commodity that is predominantly enjoyed by wealthy, college-educated employees, while lower-income workers have less access to this option.
During the pandemic, we saw dramatic disruptions to the world of work-the first in a generation...Some white-collar workers-who tend to be wealthier and college degree holders-rapidly switched to remote work. The disruptions and discrepancies the pandemic produced are still with us today and are reflected in the data.
A survey conducted by Ipsos Consumer Tracker revealed that 63% of employees making $100,000 or more have the option to work from home, compared to only 32% of workers making under $50,000. Similarly, those with higher education levels are more likely to have the ability to work remotely or in a hybrid model.
While a whopping 63% of employees that make $100,000 or more report being able to work from home sometimes or always, only 38% of those making $50,000 to $100,000 have the same benefit. That number dwindles to only 32% for workers making under $50,000. People with higher education are also more likely to be able to work hybrid or remotely (between 59% for those with college degrees and 41% for those without).
