We pay developers in different countries different rates but we pay them well enough for their cost of living. Everyone needs to advocate for themselves at some point and ask for they pay they believe they deserve based on skill and cost of living. When I don’t like about what facebook is doing (if they are going to do this) is reduce pay based on where someone lives.

Also what about the perks they offer for working from the office? Meals or other services. Do they give employees a stipend for this? What benefits will there be to working from home? If you will be paid less and lose these perks then it would be better to just go into the office.
