Next pandemic toilet paper problem: who pays for workers from home?
The wire service Reuters took a look at the question on Wednesday: "When the world is in crisis, and tens of millions of us are digging for the long work from home, a question arises: who pays for coffee, tea and toilet paper?

“It is intended to cover not only coffee, tea and toilet paper used during working hours but also extra gas, electricity and water plus depreciation costs for a desk and a chair – all essential which you would never dream of paying for in the office. "We have literally counted down to how many teaspoons there are in an average household, so from there it is not so difficult to determine the costs," says Gabrielle Bettonville of the family financial institution NIBUD, which is funded by the Dutch government and examined the extra costs of teleworking.
