Things Covid has proven:

1. The job you were told couldn't be done remotely can be done remotely

2. Many disabled workers could have been working from home, but corporations just didn't want them to.

3. Internet is a utility, not a luxury.

4. Universal healthcare is a necessity.



It's worth noting that in a lot of places the infrastructure to handle that many remote workers cannot handle the load.

A lot of jobs still can't be done remotely. Food service, a considerable amount of retail, transit, all sorts of essential services, etc. But yes, a lot of office jobs can be done wherever so long as they don't require actual paper being handled.
