There's a related article too about journalists in the Philippines used by a company called Journatic that would generate content for community newspapers so they could keep their staff of reporters underpaid and to a minimum. They would write articles under false bylines using police reports.

Fascinating.

ps. Here's a transcript of the first link, which aired June 29, 2012, btw. (Old news!)
But, as I always say, old news is new news, if I haven't heard of it before.

pps. "Journatic" is now called "LocalLabs".

it looks like there are a couple of states where it is actually lower

Facebook and all other internet companies will be covered under federal law so the federal minimum applies. I can't imagine anyone subjecting themselves to this type of hazard for less than the federal minimum wage.
