Too Long; Didn't Read
In recent years, remote working has become less of a concept and more of a reality. Companies like WordPress, duckduckgo, and Zapier operate with a mostly-if-not-completely distributed workforce. Automattic (the company behind WordPress) offers a $250-a-month remittance for employees to work at their own preferred locations and, last year, shut down their Bay Area office due to inactivity. The State of the Remote Job Marketplace report suggests that, in North America, there are more than 3.9 million remote workers.
