Big tech companies are still trying to rally workers back into physical offices, and many workers are still not having it. Based on a recent report, computer-maker Dell has stumbled even more than most.

Dell announced a new return-to-office initiative earlier this year. In the new plan, workers had to classify themselves as remote or hybrid.

Those who classified themselves as hybrid are subject to a tracking system that ensures they are in a physical office 39 days a quarter, which works out to close to three days per work week.

Alternatively, by classifying themselves as remote, workers agree they can no longer be promoted or hired into new roles within the company.

Business Insider claims it has seen internal Dell tracking data that reveals nearly 50 percent of the workforce opted to accept the consequences of staying remote, undermining Dell's plan to restore its in-office culture.

Democracy at Work is a non-profit 501(c)3 that produces media and live events. Our work analyzes capitalism critically as a systemic problem and advocates for democratizing workplaces as part of a systemic solution. We seek a stronger, fuller democracy – in our politics and culture as well as in our economy - based on workers’ equal collaboration and shared leadership inside enterprises and throughout society.

I'm an Europe based nurse and work shifts: 06:00 to 14:00, 13:00 to 21:00 or graveyard shift: 20:00 to 06:30 the next day.

Working bedside full time I earn EUR 4K before taxes plus shift supplements that earn me between EUR 0.5 and 0.9K per month, so that’s between 4.5K and 4.9K per month. Most of this extra money comes from working the graveyard shift, the second biggest contribution are weekends.

I know I'm not going to work bedside until I retire because this is a tiring and demanding job and have been looking for administrative positions within my hospital system.

There are 2 regular 9 to 5 jobs that fit my area of expertise: case manager and study nurse. Monday to Friday, no weekends except a doctor needs me with him there, no night shifts. My starting base salary would be 3.7K but I wouldn’t get supplements anymore.

I’m not sure I want to have a normal 9 to 5, mostly office based job if it means earning EUR 0.8K to 1.2K less than I do now. I’d sleep better, I wouldn’t have to wake up at 4:30 or fear that a loud neighbor is going to ruin the night because it's Friday and he wants to party, I wouldn’t feel tired after every morning shift, I wouldn’t have to work 8 to 10 days without breaks…

But I believe I’ve grown used to nursing: a positive aspect of waking up at 04:30 is that streets are empty when you go to work and when you come home, there are always free seats on your commute, no children yelling after school, no queues when you go shopping, I don’t mind working weekends because you work less and earn a bit more… And where I work there is a huge nurse scarcity and my manager doesn’t complain much when I call in sick.

I don’t know how to decide

Apple has spent years "intentionally, knowingly, and deliberately paying women less than men for substantially similar work," a proposed class action lawsuit filed in California on Thursday alleged.

A victory for women suing could mean that more than 12,000 current and former female employees in California could collectively claw back potentially millions in lost wages from an apparently ever-widening wage gap allegedly perpetuated by Apple policies.

The lawsuit was filed by two employees who have each been with Apple for more than a decade, Justina Jong and Amina Salgado. They claimed that Apple violated California employment laws between 2020 and 2024 by unfairly discriminating against California-based female employees in Apple’s engineering, marketing, and AppleCare divisions and "systematically" paying women "lower compensation than men with similar education and experience."

I've seen several big chains, mostly gas stations and fast food, advertising "daily pay". If you are worried about how you're going to make it until your next paycheck, whether it's tomorrow or next month, or you have no savings to cover any sort of emergency, then you live paycheck-to-paycheck.

Don't be fooled. "Daily Pay" is just a shitty attempt at avoiding paying better wages by giving you your shitty wages faster. It's designed to benefit the company, not you.

Edit: If you don't get to hold on to your pay check long enough to earn interest on any of it, then getting paid daily is not benefiting you.
