Premise 1: There are lots of homeless people in the downtown area.
Premise 2: Since office workers got used to working from home during the height of the COVID pandemic, many of them prefer not to return to the office, and as a result we have lots of empty or half-empty office buildings . . . downtown.
Conclusion: Therefore we should continue ignoring the homeless problem, and force office workers to go back to their cubicles.
Pretty obvious, really.
