Chicago is seeing fewer employees return to the office than all but two big cities across the U.S., data show.

Across 10 major metro areas, about a quarter of employees were in the office last week. In Chicago, that number was just 16 percent, Bloomberg reported.

Other parts of the country are seeing more employees come back, according to key-card access data from Kastle Systems International. In Los Angeles, 32 percent of employees were at work last week. In Dallas, 41 percent were.

But in New York, only 13 percent of employees commuted in. San Francisco had just 14 percent at their cubicles last week.

On earnings calls, some landlords have voiced frustration that the work-from-home revolution has persisted.
