We’re just beginning to have that conversation in Oregon. I did see some town in the midwest is offering $10K for remote workers to relo.
For rural Oregon and even in Corvallis, we find remote workers to be an important economic factor. Here at Corvallis Foundry, our 9 permanent desks are occupied by 8 remote workers, 6 seats are paid by their company, and 4 might not be able to work remotely if not for our location.
From a workforce development perspective, I think we should be looking at pulling numbers together to advocate for funds.
