The Internet's Best-Kept Secret: Underpaid & Traumatized Ghost Workers

In the digital age, the internet has become an integral part of our lives, but there lies a hidden workforce often overlooked - ghost workers. These individuals, often from developing countries, are employed by companies to perform various tasks online, from data entry to customer service, for meager wages. Their work is often hidden from view, and they are often subjected to poor working conditions, exploitation, and even trauma. The anonymity of the internet allows companies to easily avoid labor laws and regulations, leaving these ghost workers vulnerable and voiceless. Addressing this issue requires a multifaceted approach, including raising awareness, implementing regulations, and promoting ethical practices among businesses.
