This is interesting, because it would just incentivize people to work at the office and spread the disease

I know right? Exact opposite of how you want to tax to encourage good social outcomes. Taxing WFH employees might encourage them to go back to the office and 1) spread disease 2) increase carbon emissions from their commute and time in the office. Stupid idea

I’m looking for assistance on building your own portfolio in my traditional 401K. I’ve been reading that it’s important to choose funds with low expense ratios. Also, that it is recommended to have at least one US stock, international stock , and bond. I am 24yo so ideally, I’d want to allocate 90%-100% to stocks and 0%-10% to the bond. Any other things I should be looking at?
