People with access to technology can work remotely although I think offices are better because they're conducive for knowledge spillovers. I could be wrong, however.

I can definitely see some folks working remotely. It makes sense for a lot of people.

Young people can learn new skills if they have access to the internet, and the desire. edX, Coursera, GitHub, YouTube (to name a few) are brilliant if you know where to look for the right things. Formal education, although preferable, doesn't matter as much as it used to. Universities are hosting online courses, some of them for free; MIT OpenCourseware comes to mind. The world is only a few clicks away.

Covid-19 came at a time nobody expected it but i believe it has a positive impact on the future of work
During the lockdown people were able to think and find a way to survive without going for their normal day job, 
It trained us to survive in a very tough situation, 
And due to covid-19 most people now have handwork(vocations) i even learnt  Music Production during the lockdown

IT and technology is at forefront to help curb the impact of Covid-19. 
Working from home is at the centre stage now so as to avoid overcrowding at work place.
