Facebook to hike minimum wage of content reviewers and moderators

May 14, 2019 / HRK News

Facebook will be increasing the pay of its employees involved in content moderationwork. The minimum wage will now be increased from $15 per hour to $18 to $22 an hour, based on the location of the employee. Last year, a content reviewer had filed a case against Facebook saying the work had caused her mental trauma. Following this, other contract employees urged the Company to provide better working conditions and also arrange for counselling and health insurance. The job of content reviewers requires them to view all sorts of content, even images of torture, terrorist acts, and beheadings, which leave a lasting impact on their minds.
