I'm debating whether to resign precisely because of RTO. Unfortunately, Fido is not interested in gas prices or how much more we will spend on gas coming to the office. But an even bigger problem is that it's pointless, because most people are more productive and can do the job from home perfectly well. I'm sure there are those who would give up a portion of their paycheck if only they didn't have to come to the office?

True, Fidelity pays lousy compared to other companies for the same position. I've turned down a few jobs already because the pay is just comparatively low. The work seems okay, but the pay is lousy. Probably why more and more jobs are being filled by H1b. Can't remember the last time I interviewed with Fido and didn't interview with someone affiliated with India somehow.
Three days a month is not much, but that's just the start of the squeeze. Laszlo Block (look him up if needed) has been calling out companies starting this seemingly innocuous RTO policy as "slowly boiling the frog in a pot of water". Fido s@cks now anyhow, go on the market so you can get paid what you're worth. You can be sure your newly hired peers are making much more than you and Fido hopes you're too lazy to find out.

come on, it’s not that bad. don’t quit over that, unless you have a more attractive offer in hand etc.
70% of gen-z would rather quit than go back to the office.
If the rumor is 3 days a month (in the same week) it’s not the worst thing ever but nothing sure how long term that is. I agree though, get with the times and let us wfh.
Claim you have at risk family member and can’t come in because of the new strain. Vaguely imply you might sue or go to media if manager seems to resist.
The topic will never be worn out. I know some companies actually do the give up part of your paycheck thing, but fidelity could pay a lot better so that would be a very bad plan on their part. Let’s get rid of that idea. Thank god I haven’t heard that brought up.
