VMware Cuts Pay for Remote Workers Fleeing Silicon Valley https://www.bloomberg.com/amp/news/articles/2020-09-11/vmware-twitter-cut-pay-for-remote-workers-fleeing-bay-area
@zhenech I'm not surprised, also in Germany you can get higher wages for example in Munich saying "Munich is so expensive!!", despite it being your choice to live in Munich.
That is driving the flat rents in the cities up. Having same wages independent of location would be better.
Doesn't make it any better that it happens in Germany too ;) But what bothers me most is the cut because you move afterwards.
@zhenech Making a contract "your wage is X", and changing it afterwards from one side sounds like a break of contract, yes.
If you said "I need extra money, because Munich!" and it is an extra part in the contract, it would sound like a different thing to me.
@zhenech Christ, this quote from a ServiceNow exec:
“I don’t believe we should have an environment where management is not involved with those determinations, because what you could get into here is a situation where employees then become the decision-maker in working literally from anywhere, and you would have a hard time organizing and holding together a culture if that was the case”
Literally afraid to let employees decide how best to work. Literally afraid to give up control of the culture to the people actually participating in it.
Like, I know that's common (because sociopathy and psychopathy are massively overrepresented among executives), but it's so gobsmacking to see it just laid bare like that
