The future of work.

“‘By Labor Day, I’ll be very disappointed if people haven’t found their way into the office and then we’ll have a different kind of conversation,’ he said, adding that workers can’t expect to get their New York salaries if they continue to work remotely.”

If you’re in recruiting for Morgan Stanley or for New York City, that’s a big-bet statement.

Which is in contrast to Gregory Galant’s comment on Muck Rack’s new work program:

The future, indeed.

Ps: If you’re in the services industry, which are you rooting for?
