Bosses Still Aren’t Sure Remote Workers Have ‘Hustle’
  + stars: | 2021-05-23 | by ( Vanessa Fuhrmans | ) www.wsj.com + 0.00   time to read: +10 min
So why do some bosses think remote workers aren’t as committed as office dwellers? A February 2020 study of more than 400 tech workers by researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and Northeastern University found that while remote and nonremote workers won roughly the same number of promotions, the salaries of remote workers grew more slowly. Another reason some bosses have doubts about remote workers’ dedication lies with just how difficult managing far-flung teams can be, research suggests. In turn, roughly as many said they believed remote workers usually perform worse than those in offices and doubted remote workers could stay motivated long term. “Remote managing is more a finesse game.”Leaders who look askance at remote work may be setting themselves up for some turnover.

According to employees at some of the nation's top companies, flexible work is no longer just a nice-to-have perk. "Companies simply cannot force people back to the office especially when there are other remote jobs available elsewhere." Recognizing the value of remote workOffering an option for remote work is proven to be a powerful recruitment and retention tool. But not every executive recognizes the value of remote work. Blind's Kim told Insider that companies need to be thoughtful about how they're bringing employees back.

Little Pearl, a luxury DC wine bar, is closing for a month during an upcoming, rare cicada swarm. Trillions of "Brood X" cicadas emerge from the ground once every 17 years across the eastern US. Little Pearl said the sound, which could be louder than a jet, would "ruin" people's dining experience. Small numbers of cicadas appear in the eastern US every year — but occasionally, a giant swarm emerges from the ground. This year, cicadas known as "Brood X" are set to emerge from the soil to mate and then die across late May and early June.

Editorial staff members at Washingtonian are refusing to publish online on Friday after the D.C.-based magazine’s chief executive wrote an opinion piece about the future of remote work that generated an immediate backlash. Cathy Merrill, the chief executive of Washingtonian Media, wrote in The Washington Post on Thursday that she was “concerned about the unfortunately common office worker who wants to continue working at home and just go into the office on occasion.”Ms. Merrill wrote that by choosing to continue to work from home, employees are offering executives “a tempting economic option the employees might not like.”Employees who are not in the office are not able to participate in what she called “extra” responsibilities, such as mentoring junior coworkers, helping a colleague, or celebrating a birthday, she explained, and managers may thus be less inclined to continue providing these workers with the status, and benefits, of being a full-time employee.

51- the Washington, D.C. But it nevertheless faces daunting odds in the Senate, so long as the legislative filibuster remains in place. But the filibuster, which requires 60 votes to pass most legislation, would likely thwart any attempt to pass the statehood bill in the Senate by a simple majority. "D.C. statehood does not require a constitutional amendment," Norton added, responding to another complaint about the statehood bill. "There are no provisions in the Constitution about a filibuster," said House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., in an interview Wednesday with the Washingtonian about the statehood bill.

But the chaos of the January 6 siege has led to reinvigorated calls for granting DC statehood. DC residents themselves, though, hardly need to be reminded of their paradoxical political disadvantages. Supporters for DC Statehood cheer as drivers honk their horns during the morning commute outside the Rayburn Building in Washington, DC on February, 11, 2020. Later that year at a press conference, Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, a Republican, said granting DC statehood would be "unconstitutional."

Trump's Washington hotel has suffered a loss of income and interest, a Guardian report says. Former President Trump's Washington DC hotel, which was once the bustling hub of the MAGA world, is now eerily empty after suffering a huge loss of income and status, according to a report by the Guardian. But since Trump left the White House and moved his base to the Mar-A-Lago resort in Florida, the atmosphere has been eerily quiet. Sally Quinn, a local journalist who has written about the hotel, told the Guardian she "can't imagine who goes there now." A room at the Washington DC hotel typically costs around $47 to $596 (£439) per night at this time of year, according to 1100 Pennsylvania.

WASHINGTON — It was eerie, after Jan. 6, when the hush first fell. Troops plodded through posh neighborhoods, and military vehicles blocked some streets. Storefronts remained as shuttered as ever, and then the National Mall became off limits, too. Imperious black fencing already surrounded the White House, and now concertina wire encircled the Capitol. But when the inauguration finally arrived, the silence wasn’t so foreboding.

A generational custody battle is raging over Vice President Kamala Harris. It’s another sign that identity politics is king and that generational identity is taking its place alongside race, gender and ethnicity in defining politicians. Kamala Harris, left, with her sister, Maya, and her mother, Shyamala, outside their apartment in Berkeley, Calif., in 1970. In a recent article, the San Francisco Chronicle found: "Much of who Kamala Harris is today travels back to her childhood in Berkeley in the 1960s and early 1970s." To these younger generations, Harris is a long-overdue trailblazer, breaking down barriers in leadership.

An Inaugural Lockdown Comes at a Price for Washingtonians

WASHINGTON — Chuck Weathers was waiting Monday morning on a bus in Columbia Heights, a residential neighborhood of shops and quaint homes about four miles north of the Capitol. It was cold, the bus was nowhere in sight and Mr. Weathers was annoyed. “We didn’t do a damn thing,” he said, referring to the people of Washington. “But now it’s our problem.”The problem he was confronting was the simple act of moving around the nation’s capital, which seemed to be getting increasingly difficult as the city shored itself up against potential violence for the inauguration on Wednesday of President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. Thousands of troops have poured into the capital, where armored military trucks are parked in the middle of streets to block traffic and subway stations and roads are closed. Downtown Washington is locked down, boarded up and on guard for the ushering in of the new leader in hopes of preventing a scene like the one that played out to the nation’s horror on Jan. 6 as a mob stormed the Capitol.

REUTERSThe post (here) shows a picture of Pelosi at a gathering surrounded by at least eight people, who are not socially distancing or wearing masks. All of these restrictions were put in place months after this photo was taken. This article was produced by the Reuters Fact Check team.
