I had not thought about this previously, but I am becoming more concerned that this WFH trend will lead to outsourcing more types of jobs to people in other countries. If companies are saying that they are not seeing a drop in productivity from people working remotely, then the next logical step is going to be looking for ways to lower the labor costs by hiring people in the cheapest areas of the country/world.

This would not be good for the employees who hold the jobs now. Their wages would be at risk for being lowered. However, if you are a shareholder rather than an employee, then lower costs mean higher profits.
