Are robots and content farms the future of the news?

Position: Per Piece Writer
Treatment: 1099 Independent Contractor
Time: You choose when you work, but we are looking for day availability
Location: Remote. As a contractor, you choose where you work
Pay: Per-piece, roughly $12/hr. For example $4 stories take about 20 +/- minutes, and $2 stories take about 10 +/- minutes.

Say what?! 10 minutes for one story? Making $ 12 per worked hour? Does anyone actually do this? I can’t believe. Who do these companies think they are? But what kind of self evaluation do you make when choosing this as an employment? What are you for your fellow writers? Who is the robot in this story?
