Snip

A Deutsche Bank survey found more than half of workers wanted to continue working from home for the 2-3 days a week after the pandemic.

According to the Deutsche Bank Research report, a 5% tax rate on those days on the average salary of a remote worker could raise $48 billion a year in the U.S., 6.9 billion in the U.K. and 15.9 billion euros in Germany.

This would cover the costs of grants for people who can't work from home and are on lower incomes.

I propose a 5% tax on money-laundering banks, who else agrees?

I propose they go to jail and pay 5% on the money laundered too.

5. People who work from home aren't paying gas taxes, sales taxes on their lunches,

sales taxes on their work clothes they don't need any more. Companies aren't paying real estate taxes on big office buildings. I assume that's the rationale. Deutsche Bank can recommend anything they want, but any politicians who get on this train will be roasted for it, and deservedly so.

6. My takeaway

Isn't it odd that the masters of the universe need all us lowly working-class drones out there busting our humps or their little system of wealth transfer to the elite doesn't function so good. The workers getting more mindful of their habits isn't favorable to the movers and shakers. If we're not in a constant state of near-panic, running as fast as we can just to stay in place, their method becomes madness.

Instead of taxing the workers who are keeping things going, let's tax the idle wealth that's not doing anyone any good except for a very narrow slice of society?

7. This, a billion times.

Tax the people who have all the money, more than they will ever need. What a concept.

Also, one would think Deutsche Bank would have the good sense to be vewy, vewy quiet right about now, but NOOO.

8. Money-laundering banks should STFU! The nerve of these people.

They should be lucky to not be sitting in a prison somewhere.

13. Retrograde proposes a 50% tax on Deutsche Bank

for being incompetent idiots who kept lending to a certain Donald Trump after he defaulted time after time. And maybe an extra 10% for being generally smarmy.

16. I Assume They Oppose a Wealth Tax

These are likely the same people who oppose a wealth tax. I do not have a problem with them opposing a wealth tax. However, if you oppose a wealth tax you should not propose an additional tax on regular working people just because they are working from home.
