Craig Lambert talked about his book, Shadow Work: The Unpaid, Unseen Jobs That Fill Your Day, about the work the public does for free that was once done by paid, entry-level workers, including pumping gas, bagging groceries, checking in at the airport, buying stock, and assembling furniture, among others. He said that this kind of “shadow work” has been consuming people’s free time for the past 20 years, and argues that it is an unseen factor in unemployment rates. close
