Google executives say they have no problem with employees who have gotten used to working from home and don’t want to return to the office. As long as they’re willing to take a cut in pay.

Officials with Alphabet Incorporated — Google’s parent company — say they’ve always factored the distance of an employee’s commute into his or her salary. And employees who now work from home have reduced their commutes to zero. “Our compensation packages have always been determined by location,” an unidentified Google spokesman says. “And we always pay at the top of the local market based on where an employee works from.”

Not on board with the plan are Google employees, who apparently don’t like the idea of receiving smaller paychecks in spite of saving money on commuting. One worker, who went from working in a Seattle office to doing her job from home, says she’s been told to expect a 10 percent reduction in pay. “It’s as high of a pay cut as I got for my most recent promotion,” she says. “I didn’t do all that hard work to get promoted to then take a pay cut.”

Does this sound like a fair deal? Would you give up a percentage of your salary in exchange for working from home?
