Facebook raises standards for contract workers in tech

May 13, 2019

This week, Facebook announced that its subcontracted workforce will soon benefit from a higher minimum wage and better benefits.

This policy squarely positions Facebook as a global leader in providing good jobs for its full workforce, and recognizes that a good job is about more than a just a wage – it’s about providing for the health and well-being of our families. All the workers who have been winning unions, organizing, and speaking out in the industry should be proud today.

We hope other tech corporations follow Facebook’s lead in providing fair pay, comprehensive healthcare, and benefits to contract workers. Corporations have the power to shape the lives of tens of thousands of workers globally through the power of their purchasing.
