Now Michael Bloomberg backs Marissa Mayer: New York mayor and billionaire calls working from home ‘one of the dumber ideas I’ve ever heard’
Michael Bloomberg is the latest business tycoon to weigh in on the debate over working from home, as the opinionated mayor came out in support of Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer.
The billionaire businessman-turned-politician said that Mayer’s decision to ban telecommuting at her company was a smart one even though she came under a firestorm following the revelation that the new mom had a nursery built for her new son just prior to announcing the rule.
‘I’ve always said, telecommuting is one of the dumber ideas I’ve ever heard,’ Mr Bloomberg said during a radio interview on Friday.
