I just trained two brothers to use the quality control app that we have built. We have outsourced the management of this function to another company, which provides the infrastructure and the manpower, and allows us to focus on other core areas of our product.
I just found out that the two brothers are being paid Rs. 5500 each.
And that they travel for 2 hours each way, to get to the office.
And they want to work without any breaks for lunch or tea, because they can then finish the daily quota of 8 hours earlier, and then head home.
For Rs. 5500, I am getting an able-bodied, healthy young men who are decently well versed in English. For a month.
That is how cheap a human is.
