Facebook Content Moderators - Shitty Job

Verge interview.

Visually safe for work but includes descriptions of the hella shitty stuff these FB contractors have to watch/see while doing their jobs for a hella shitty company.

I don't get it. How is it different than any other group of people complaining about having a shitty job. Every big company has people with no other options doing work they don't like and not getting pampered while doing it.
Can't believe he's blaming FB for his overeating.

So I read the article and it sounds brutal. I feel they should make this a rotating job, whereby maybe you do X number of reviews per week and that's it for a few months while you do something else.

Otherwise, it's a shitty job but someone has to do it?

Make executives do a rotation so they can see what they have created.

Makes sense to me. Look, someone has to do it, and clearly it causes psychological issues, and it's not fair to the employee.
