The post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and associated co-morbidities suffered by social media moderators paid very little to weed and tend a walled-garden that represents and manipulates one of the largest polities on Earth has been ruled compensable with the rather lenient ruling of a judge that results in a class-action settlement rather than the social media giant providing for job retraining, therapy, counselling or long-term treatment. Current and former moderators are to receive a thousand dollars—which could balloon up to six-thousand should the plaintiff be able to demonstrate more serious mental distress—which comes as a significant bargain to one of the richest and most disruptive companies in the world.
