Discussion on: Pay cut to work remotely - Fair deal?‍

I would vote no, this is an unrealistic ask because to be honest. Studies show that most workers who work from home, give more hours to their job not less. And the employer gets to save money on building, power, internet, etc by having an employee work from home. So this means that they are seeing a bigger benefit to an employee working from home. Not saying that the employee doesn't benefit, but I don't feel its appropriate to ask for the employee to take a paycut when they stand to save money.

Exactly my argument too :)

It's fine to consider remote work as a perk, just don't ask for a compromise elsewhere in exchange for the benefit.
