Apple employees have started a petition asking the company to let them work from home if they want to, instead of making them come into the office 3 days a week. The employees say that they have been doing a great job working from home and that they should be able to keep doing it if they want to. So far, 100 people have signed the petition.

It started with the major tech companies, and that’s the culture people started to copy.”
