Facebook to give employees $1,000, bonuses as Covid-19 aid


CALIFORNIA – Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is giving the company’s 45,000 employees their six-month bonuses plus $1,000 to help them during the coronavirus pandemic, according to a news report.

NBC News quoted Facebook sources as saying that content moderators will also be paid even if they work from home.

“We recognize that many people are going to need more time away to care for children and their families,” Zuckerberg wrote in a memo.

“We also know that many of you may have additional expenses as part of setting up your home to enable remote work and support your family. We’re going to grant all employees an additional $1,000 to use for whatever you see fit to support yourself and your family in adapting during this period,” he said. ICA/Expat Media
