For haters here: I mean everyone would love to work for FAANG & live in San Francisco. The only reason you are not doing it is because you can’t get a job there. True?

Let’s say they make work from home permanent, what will they do about pay structure across areas where there are different cost of livings? Let’s say you are hired out of New York as the same level as someone in Houston? Will the Houston employees get bumped up or NY employees get bumped down over time? Looks like the real winners here may be those in high paying areas such as New York and San Francisco. They can move to areas now with low cost of livings and make a killing! Thoughts?
