If working from home is here to stay for a long while, why don’t companies ease up on hiring people that don’t live in a particular city they are “hiring for” since everyone is remote anyway? e.g. work for a big city company but based remotely in a different city/smaller city. I see a few that have, but don’t see it increasing in practice yet.
