Facebook is doing more for its workers by providing a $120 million employee housing complex in California. This complex will make commuting easier for workers and cut down the costs of gas, thereby lowering the area's production of air pollution. The housing project will be within walking distance of Facebook headquarters and will feature 394 units, shops, a sports bar, outdoor community pool and a doggy daycare facility.
