I'm a programmer and I work in an office. I work in an office that outsources most programming work to asia. I don't really know why but I've been told that the boss doesn't want me to work remotely. This seems odd as only 2 members of a staff of 7 are in the office.
Basically the wages in our area aren't keeping up with the cost of living and I'd like to live in a cheaper community.
What can I do to convince him that programmers should be allowed to work remotely?
