Did coronavirus kill the way America works? New survey weighs in


MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (Mike Osborne)  --  A new survey from the personal finance website Wallethub.com finds Americans torn about how coronavirus is impacting the way they work.

Of those surveyed, 60 percent say COVID-19 is changing work for the better. Nearly a third say working from home is the future. Forty-one percent believe any employee forced to return to the shop or office should be paid more for doing so.

However, half of those surveyed say parents can’t work productively from home. One-third told Wallethub there should be harsh penalties for anyone who refuses to return to work.

What do employees miss most about being at work? Thirty-two percent say they miss co-workers. Twenty-one percent say they miss simply getting out of the house and another 12 percent miss the routine.

Twenty-seven percent say they don’t miss anything at all.

The Wallethub survey is based on responses from 300 individuals nationwide. The data was then “normalized” by age, gender and income to “reflect U.S. demographics.”
