Netflix Helps Workers – level 1

27-03-2020 07:00

Many people are not working because of the coronavirus. An official at Netflix says that Netflix is going to help some of its workers.

Netflix has a $100 million fund. The money goes to the workers who are paid by the hour. They work all over the world.

Netflix stops production on some shows a few weeks ago. These are shows like ‘Stranger Things’ and ‘The Witcher.’

Netflix is also going to give $15 million to other workers. These workers are in countries where Netflix normally makes shows or movies.

Difficult words: fund (a lot of money for a specific activity), pay by the hour (when you get money at your job from how many hours you work), production (when people make creative things, such as plays, TV shows, or movies).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
