How much is a remote job worth? 


New research from a Stanford University economist suggests that employees are willing to give up about 8% in annual pay for a job that is partially or fully remote, USA Today reports. 
That number amounts to roughly $4,600, based on the U.S. median salary of $57,200 for full-time workers. 
Economist Nicholas Bloom’s findings suggest that three years into the remote-work revolution, telework is still a hot commodity.   
Workers still feel like they are getting a deal when taking lower pay for remote jobs, because employees are saving thousands when not commuting. In 2022, a FlexJobs survey found 45% of remote workers reported saving at least $5,000 a year. One in five reported saving $10,000 a year. Read the full story.
