I'm watching Life on Mars again. The BBC time travel cop drama from 2007. The show is very un pc at times and plays a lot for laughs or to show how things have changed. I listened to one of the lead actors a few weeks ago and he said he couldn't see it getting made these days because of the content.
I think Life on Mars is the best quality TV drama I've seen. Breaking Bad is great, but even 5 series is too long and plenty of what's going on seems like filler. Game of Thrones tailed off. Life on Mars is great start to finish and doesn't go on too long.

oh,the horror

maybe they should just ask for a raise?

I mean,PTSD seems a bit of a reach
They have fuck all training, fuck all support, and they're seeing kiddie porn, people being tortured, horrific accidents etc for 8 hours a day. Plus they have quotas to fill, so their working conditions are shit.

Facebook spent half a million dollars a week on security and air travel for Zuckerberg last year. He's worth somewhere north of $60 billion. Facebook executives on multi-million dollar contracts don't get nightmares from what comes up on their screens every day at work. Facebook moderators do. They get $28k/year. Pay the fucking moderators. :bart

All of those jobs pay a lot more than $28k, have a lot more training, and provide a lot more support and cameraderie. I hear traumatic shit all the time at my job, but I'm not treated as a disposable automation, and I have some decent perks and benefits.

And "just pictures on the Internet"..... yeah, you sell that short. For a start, it's not all just pictures, and second, it's not even that simple to start with. Oftentimes it's less stressful to see something through start to finish than it is to dip in and out for 2 minutes. Pay the fucking moderators.

Someone has to do shit jobs. Why should they not earn a living wage to do an extremely stressful and necessary job, for one of the richest companies in the world which is headed by one of the richest men in the world?

I didn't say they should not be PAID FAIRLY, I said they are kinda reaching with the weeping about PTSD

Everyone should be paid fairly

Im just not buying they got PTSD from looking at the internet.

I personally would not choose to use the term PTSD, though it does apply.

How much child porn do you think you could see before it started to take a toll on you?

Want to watch the video of the mosque shooting over and over and over? Doubtful. They should earn more than a shelf stacker. Their employer is in the top 10 richest people on the planet, and 100% of his wealth comes from the Facebook platform. Pay the moderators. :bart

I dont WANT to watch it but its not going to give me PTSD and since I dont want to watch it Im not going to take a job that entails me watching it,eh?

Just like Im not a roofer because Im not into broiling on roofs in july..............and Im not a day care worker because I dont want to listen to two dozen kids yammer all day

And why should they earn more than shelf stackers?

Physical labor somehow less important than moderating facebook?

Im betting many of em do the facebook thing to AVOID physical labor..................because that shit is hard,eh?

People don't really know how they're going to handle that type of stuff until they're doing it day in and day out.

Perhaps a lot of them do.

Others won't be suitable for physical work for any number of legitimate reasons.

I'd rather do my job than work in a warehouse - but I know warehouse guys who tell me they couldn't take the pressure and the trauma of my job. You're physically safe, but you are exposed to all sorts of horrific shit that would never appear in a warehouse job.

Anyway, $28k for an important, psychologically challenging job (and it is important for Facebook) working for one of the most profitable companies on the planet, is a joke. They don't have to earn six figures, but why shouldn't they earn $40k? Can Facebook not afford that, or does it not actually need the work that they do for it?

Dude, we have posters here who've developed PTSD and have had their feeble little minds twisted by engaging in conversation. Poor bastards mindsets have changed in just 6 - 7 years here. Lord only knows what those Facebook folks go through.

I wouldn't be able to do that job. They should get proper training and support, and if they haven't then the deserve compensation. It's not like Facebook don't have the money.

among other gems in the rules apparently 'women' get $240 for passing 'go' while men get the normal $200

because the 'pay gap',obviously :lol:

good lord :patsch




Ms. Monopoly

Female players get $1,900 at the start of the game, and male players get $1,500. When passing "Go", female players get $240, while male players only get the standard $200 as in the normal game.[1][2] In addition, the game differs from regular Monopoly in that properties are replaced by inventions women created or contributed to, including Wi-Fi, to which Hedy Lamarr and Radia Perlman contributed;[3] modern shapewear by Spanx founder Sara Blakely;[4][5] and chocolate chip cookies, invented by Ruth Graves Wakefield.
