but it should be a fundamental right for anybody when the job allows it

I don't personally agree with this, but I get your gist. I think it's unwise to ban remote work. But IMHO the employer is paying the salary, and as such, they have the right to decide on the work arrangement/environment that works best for their preferred style of doing business.

you need specific skills

Couldn't agree with this more. This was just a general, 10,000-foot view kinda article. But there are a lotta specific things - skills - that you should have to be an effective remote worker. Same goes for the employer.

Indeed, it's actually included when I say "when the job allows it" but that was unclear. My point is you are still free to quit your job if nothing justifies the "0% remote work".
