Today, I live an hour away from work, and asked my boss if I could work remotely as roads are closed due to a bad storm. He said no, I have to come in or lose a day's pay. I found out he is letting my coworkers work remotely and be paid. I've been with the company for 8+ years; my coworkers have been there ~2.5 years. FML

There are two possible reasons for this: 1) With 8 years of experience, you are vital to the in-person operations of the company. The newbies simply are not. 2) He doesn't like you.

If the roads are that bad, stay home then. If you won't get paid for it, don't work remotely. Problem solved...

it's called being a adult, get over it... don't like it? quit!!!!!!

You sound like one of those morons that also groan "No one wants to work!!" when trying to take advantage of a restaurant staff member.

Same kind that screams about how unfair vaccine mandates by employers are. Only cares when it directly affects him.

I'd make a report to HR or BBB or something. Shouldn't matter who this person is for the company, if they are able to do the job remotely but are told to come in any ways with dangerous conditions while others get to stay home, that's got to be against some regulation or policy.

Never go to HR. They work for the bosses and against the employees. They shield the bosses from lawsuits. They are not your friend. Get your own lawyer if you are so aggrieved.
