It's likely that high employee turnover is the real culprit
I love this area so much, as I do truly believe that I improving the biggest chunk in our day is a priority we are still ignoring - whether we are afraid of the business oligarchs or something else, is another debate.
Thus, thank you for pointing out these rather points about businesses who are unwilling to adapt, while asking people to literally to go back to wasting their time on commutes and donatinf their money to bad coffer shops. We had a lot articles here in NZ about that too. I never understood why the media is giving this so much attention.
On a small note:
I cannot acces the archx article you mentioned about working less? I would love to read that, as it is not just a case, but scientifically proven. For years we have known this actually :(.
