The Erosion of Stability
Posted on 23rd August 2021 by Daniel Picave
For eighteen months since the beginning of lockdown, workers all over the country have worked from home in order to safeguard their wellbeing.
For eighteen months since the beginning of lockdown, homeworkers all over the country have seen a boost in their disposable income because they were saving the cost of commuting to the office.
For eighteen months since the beginning of lockdown, homeworkers have invested their new disposable income in home improvements, garden landscaping and family pet dogs.
For eighteen months since the beginning of lockdown, once the adjustment had been made, homeworking was found to be not too bad and definitely preferable to commuting to the office.
Under the new normal, if such a thing exists, homeworking is the preference for workers and their employers. The employer can make substantial savings on estate costs such as rent, utilities and office cleaning.
Employers have made those savings now and it has given them an appetite to find more savings.
For eighteen months since the beginning of lockdown, homeworkers have enjoyed an enhanced disposable income. Employers realise that if employees are no longer spending thousands of pounds on commuting costs, those thousands of pounds can be shaved from their salary packages.
Unfortunately employers have given employees eighteen months to become conditioned to the new world. Reducing salary packages will bring anxiety and hardship to many homeworking employees.
