    Two, both working from home 1 FT and one 2 days p/w.
    I'm probably getting more real work done now that I'm not getting distracted with pointless "urgent please action asap" e-mails.

    Over half my work is based at home or outside the office anyway, so no real change in that.
    Its now that Im sharing a house23/7/365 with a hearing impared/conveniently long/short sighted , routine obsessed dinasour is the real challenge to productivty.

    2 adults

    1 switched to WFH with the same hours (15 hours less travel time which is a bonus. She also can do her hours anytime bar certain meetings)

    1 self employed. Had to stop work since the tighter restrictions but would have been working less hours due to kids being home.

    Between the COVID payment and living rural I consider myself very lucky.

    One significantly reduced pay packet/slight reduction in work due to loss of major project.

    One working full-time as normal.

    One reduced to 4 day working week/pay, mostly from home.

    Could be worse to be honest for certain in this house.

    One is in retail so not working, not getting any salary

    One is an essential service and working as normal for normal salary

    One still working for same salary but working from home

    No impact on pay yet.

    What's the rational of a medical device company, Boston Scientific, reducing its work and closing lines instead of adapting to demands?

    What would you propose they make? Big difference for a company already making something like ventilators like Medtronic getting setup to make more.
