As someone who has brought immense remote value for nearly 14 years, I wholeheartedly agree with on this one.

My choice to raise a family away from city lights in *no way* reduces the value I provide. Asking for a reduction in rate is borderline insulting.


Under capitalism, your wages are based on the profit your employers can make off of your labor power. This is largely unrelated to any reasonable notion of the value you provide.

It might be hard to stomach - runs contrary to many stories we tell ourselves. But it's a fact. 🤷‍♀️
