To the Hybrid Boomer – your support is appreciated

The company’s justification for the pay cut is that employees are saving money on not having to commute to the office.

The price of gas today is between $5 and $7 a gallon depending on where in the United States you live. The commute to work for me is 7 miles round trip. Not a lot since I live very close to my company office. I agree that those who must commute 30 miles a day, for instance are saving money on gas.

But what about the cost of utilities, office supplies, internet access, and equipment like printers and ink?

There are some states in the US, like California, DC, Illinois, Iowa, Montana, New York, and Massachusetts that require employers to compensate employees for certain business expenses, but the mandates vary per state. Others states like where I live in Tennessee, there are no such requirements. So technically, the amount of savings for me in commuting costs is being offset by what I am paying to run an office out of my home.

A Hybrid Boomer is an individual born between 1946 and 1964 who is still in the workforce but working from home or a remote location. We are only required to report into a company facility when it is necessary to collaborate in person or for in-person company meetings. We transitioned into this type
of work mode during the COVID 19 Pandemic. In defining a new normal and the future of work our companies have decided to allow us to make this a permanent way to work.
