San Francisco: Facebook has decided to raise minimum wages to its outside vendors in the US to $20 per hour, and would implement the same for contractors in other countries including in India.
Content moderators and other contract workers will make at least $18 an hour, up $3 from before.
The contract workers at Facebook, employed by outside vendor partners, work either part-time or full-time and provide important services across content review, security, culinary, transportation and other teams.
Facebook is currently paying a minimum of $15 per hour, a minimum 15 paid days off for holidays, sick time and vacation and for new parents who don’t receive paid leave, a $4,000 new child benefit that gives them the flexibility to take paid parental leave.
“It’s become clear that $15 per hour doesn’t meet the cost of living in some of the places where we operate. (IANS)
