I think most people would agree that the agility with which high paid workers were able to transition to remote work with the aid of the internet was nothing short of astounding. Had it been tried without Covid, I’m sure it would have been as difficult as getting teachers back in the classrooms.
Tradespeople have also been able to keep working as their work is most often socially distanced and out of doors. Road crews, roofers, delivery workers are all busy. None of these jobs rely on a quiet space with a lap top.
It seems a natural fit to connect the low wage workers into this workforce.
