Websites don't materialize out of thin air or sustain themselves without work—it's proofreaders, web designers, and "content watchdogs" who keep the internet relatively functional and accessible. In Mary Gray and Siddharth Suri's Ghost Work: How to Stop Silicon Valley from Building a New Global Underclass, the authors assert that, despite the necessary services they provide, companies like Amazon, Google, Microsoft, and other tech behemoths undervalue this "invisible human labor force" by grossly underpaying them and denying them health benefits. Tonight, they'll look on the bright side by exploring ways for these workers to potentially thrive.
