As a part of returning back to the office, my employer hired an external firm to design a survey regarding working from home vs working at the office. The survey was, sadly, very disappointing. All questions were written in a suggestive way so that you almost couldn't give a negative answer when questioned about in the office. On the other hand the answers to questions related to working from home always had a negative tone, even the ones describing advantages.



The answer is that I get paid for my time, and my employer would rather make my life miserable (commute, feeling like wasting my life away, depressing offices, and more) than letting me have a life that is actually focused on living. Why?


@irritatingknitter it's the surplus value... just as good old Karl explained. As long as you can complete your tasks in 5h, they could assign you more for a day
