Facebook Employees – level 2

09-04-2020 07:00

On Thursday, Facebook announced that it will hire 10,000 workers by the end of 2020. These people will be product and engineering workers, and it is not clear if they will be contractors or full-time workers.

Facebook is one of a few companies that are hiring new employees during the coronavirus. The company feels very lucky because many businesses are closing down or firing their employees.

In the past weeks, 10 million people lost their jobs in the US. It was important that people do not stay too close to each other. This helps slow down the spread of the coronavirus; however, many small businesses, such as restaurants or travel agencies are losing money. Facebook decided to help these businesses, and the company will give them $100 million dollars.

Difficult words: contractor (a person who works for a company, but he is not an employee of this company), full-time worker (a person who is an employee of a company, and he works at least 35 hours or more per week), close down (to stop business activities).
