SISILIPIN ng Senate committee on labor, employment and human resources development ang umano’y nakakaawang kalagayan ng mga Pilipinong manggagawa na siyang sumasala sa mga mararahas at malalaswang bidyo sa Facebook, YouTube at Twitter.
Ito ang naging tugon ni Senador Joel Villanueva, chairman ng komite, matapos lumabas ang investigation report ng The Washington Post.
“We’ll look into it,” diin ni Villanueva matapos itong magkomento sa post ni dating Cavite Rep. Gilbert Remulla.
“Our workers should be given adequate protection, be it in the fields of occupational safety and the security of tenure, despite these recent development,” dagdag ng senador.
Base sa report ng The Washington Post, nakausap nila ang ilang content moderator na kinontrata ng Facebook YouTube at Twitter na umano’y nakakaranas ngayon ng psychological problem dahil sa mga napapanood nilang video tungkol sa suicide at massacre.
May isang empleyado umano ang gusto nang magpakamatay dahil sa mga napapanood nila.
“Workers here say the companies do not provide adequate support to address the psychological consequences of the work. They said that they cannot confide in friends because the confidentiality agreements they signed prevent them from doing so, that it is tough to opt out of content that they see, and that daily accuracy targets create pressure not to take breaks,” ayon pa sa artikulo.
Maliit na nga ang suweldo, tambak pa ang mga pinapagawa ng mga content moderator.
“Unlike moderators in other major hubs, such as those in India or the United States, who mostly screen content that is shared by people in those countries, workers in offices around Manila evaluate images, videos and posts from all over the world,” ayon sa artikulo.
“Unlike Facebook and Google contractors in the US, whose advocacy in recent months has helped lead the companies to promise increased wages and benefits, experts said the Filipino workers are far less likely to advocate for better working conditions. And while American workers view the job as a steppingstone to a potential career in tech industry, Filipino workers view the dead-end job as one of the best they can get. They are also far more fearful of the consequences of breaking their confidentiality agreements,” dagdag pa sa artikulo.
