It’s a typical day. It’s 8:30am and you’re rising from bed, running to start the coffee machine and then settling in for a good day’s work—right at your very own home office.
From 2000 to 2010, at-home workers were one of the biggest growing sectors in the U.S., with a 69% increase in just ten years. Don’t think that’s a lot? It’s the difference between 9.2 million and 13.4 million in just a small amount of time. That’s a whole lot of IKEA office stations being put together by helpless boyfriends and friendly neighbors with a tool kit.
