Exactly. They have major tax breaks based on having those headquarters filled with employees that spend on local businesses to offset the tax breaks. Without people in the office, those tax breaks are going to get revoked and the giant useless buildings are going to become much more expensive.

Social capital! BS. Try contacted office space that can't be offloaded: so we'll drag people in to fill it rather than pay for it to be empty.

They can also sell or rent the workplaces. There ks also an option to donate to charity.
