Martha Stewart Says Remote Work Will Make America ‘Go Down The Drain’

Martha Stewart

Martha Stewart, media mogul and 81-year-old Sports Illustrated star, commented on remote work. 

In a new interview, she revealed she “simply doesn’t understand” how hybrid workers can get all their tasks done by going into the office three days a week. She fears that if remote or hybrid work continues, then America will suffer. 

The lifestyle expert criticized Europe as well. “Look at the success of France with their stupid…you know, off for August, blah blah blah. That’s not a very thriving country,” she said, continuing: “Should America go down the drain because people don’t want to go back to work?”

The statement that the entire French nation takes a month off work in August is not entirely true, with many shops and attractions remaining open throughout summer.

The former stockbroker added she was on a “rampage” to get people across the U.S. back to the office.

It’s not the first time Stewart has made her strong opinions on work known. In 2021, she shared an anecdote with Harper’s Bazaar about calling an employee on a Sunday who told her they couldn’t talk because they were in the bath.
