This is a call for resistance that has nothing to do with politics. It's coming from someone who unwittingly walked into a virtual jail cell that was disguised as a DirecTV contract. I'll be behind bars for another 23 months, and I'm counting the days. Please don't take this as a rant or as an attempt to pressure AT&T, DirecTV's parent company, into appeasing me. AT&T had plenty of chances to get back into my good graces, and that ship has sailed. However, I do think AT&T's policies and institutionalized bad behavior deserve to be called out.

I've been a DirecTV customer for many years and can attest to the fact that their customer service has become increasingly abominable since AT&T took over the company. Additionally, if you are a month-to-month customer who is not under a 1-2 year contract, they continually raise their rates and no longer offer loyalty discounts. They will offer discounts if you commit to a contract, but those discounts still yield a monthly payment that is substantially more expensive than the rates I was paying for the same service last year. Shame on you AT&T/DirecTV.

If my employer requires me to return to the company's office full-time to perform my job, I will...
Agree, because I like my job regardless of where I perform my duties.
Comply, because I can't afford to lose my current job.
Go with the flow, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately, so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job that better suits my needs.
Try to negotiate a hybrid work from home / work in office arrangement with my employer.
