Should people have to work from home?
Debate Rounds (3)
Working from home, doesn't that sound nice? You wouldn't have to get up at a certain time and get dressed for work each and every day. Plus, you'd get flexible hours! Sounds like paradise, doesn't it? Though, not everyone agrees with it. Unlike my opponent, I believe that you CAN work from home, and that it isn't as difficult as some people may think. Yeah, it's still a job, you're going to have to work, but that doesn't mean you'll be working the WHOLE day. I think my opponent is wrong because you can still work from home and get things done. (A.K.A. Feeding your pets, cleaning your house, etc.) Plus, there are many benefits to working from home! Such as:
It is often to lonely you do not get to see your boss every day so you can't impress him or her every day. It is hard to share ideas on the phone and you can't play office politics when you aren't in the office.
Some people like to be in the comfort of their own home, in complete solitude. It's better than being sitting in an office all day. And if they get too lonely, then get they could get a pet!
"You do not get to see your boss every day so you can't impress him or her every day."
Depends on if the person working from home runs the business or not. Maybe it's a business run from home. And even if they had a boss, it wouldn't be mandatory to impress them everyday.
"It is hard to share ideas on the phone"
I agree that it is difficult to share ideas from the phone. However, with the advancements in technology, applications such as skype, have made this situation a lot less hectic. And if it was too difficult to do anything outside of the office, then they could just go in the next day and do what was needed.
"You can't play office politics when you aren't in the office."
Why would you want to play office politics? It's office gossip, why would you want to get involved in something like that? It could get you deployed, or worse, fired! Staying out of office politics is a much better decision.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro made good arguments for why working from home would desirable for some people, but the topic was should people *have to* work from home, even if it doesn't suit them, and he didn't really defend this idea. However, con could also have pushed the point harder. So I think it's even.
