Ars Technica: Google rater fired after speaking to Ars about work conditions

Ars Technica: Google rater fired after speaking to Ars about work conditions. “Last week we reported on the lives of Google raters, people whose job is to provide Google with data on the usefulness of its algorithms. The 10 anonymous raters we spoke with were all contractors at Leapforce, a staffing firm that provided rater services to Google. Yesterday, one of those raters, Kyle Martin Medeiros, was fired by Leapforce for an unspecified ‘breach of contract.’ Every Leapforce rater signs a contract that includes a broad NDA.”
