Facebook Employees – level 3
Facebook COO, Sheryl Sandberg, said that the company expects to hire 10,000 new product and engineering workers by the end of 2020.
At the moment, it is not clear if the newly hired people will include contractors or full-time Facebook employees.
Sandberg said that the company feels fortunate to be able to do that. Facebook is probably one of few companies that are actually expanding during the coronavirus outbreak.
In the last two weeks of March, 10 million people claimed unemployment in the US. The US President, Donald Trump, has extended social distancing guidelines until April 30 to help slow the spread of the coronavirus. Facebook announced that it will give $100 million to support small businesses that have gone bankrupt due to social distancing.
Difficult words: COO (the chief operating officer; the person who is responsible for development, design and improvements of company’s products), contractor (a person who works on a particular project in a company and is paid by another company), social distancing (when people must keep distance from other people to avoid direct contact and help stop the spread of infections), go bankrupt (to lose all of your money).
