The Covid-19 crisis is worsening inequality around the world as people fortunate enough to work remotely continue to earn a pay cheque while millions of others lose their livelihoods or risk their health in jobs that are deemed “essential” but pay low wages. Now, AL Jazeera reports, one of the world’s biggest banks has proposed a fix to level the playing field and create a more inclusive economy as nations rebuild from the pandemic: Tax remote workers. In a report called “What we must do to rebuild” Deutsche Bank suggests slapping a 5 percent daily tax on people who work from home and using the funds raised to subsidise the lowest-paid workers who are unable to work remotely, saying the tax is justified because people who work from home “are contributing less to the infrastructure of the economy while still receiving its benefits”.
