Rattner offers a grand solution to dissuade work-from-home arrangements: Housing. Why, he asks, have a big majority of European workers already returned to their offices? Simple, he says—most people there live in small apartments and houses, making stay-at-home work less comfortable. Voila!
Judge Janet Protasiewicz’s big win in Wisconsin sends a gut-check message to meek Democratic Party officials and donors who continually admonish candidates and local activists to be middle-of-the-roaders, compromising the people’s “little-d” democratic principles in hopes of winning some Republican votes.
