Digital labor refers to value adding activities performed by humans on Internet platforms. It is a global phenomenon that has come to be associated with the broader relationships between labor and digital technology. It is a multifaceted field that is characterized by exploitation, alienation, power, inequality, ideology, and struggle. These problems of digital labor are due to its inclusion and application in capitalist relations of production. It is already transforming the workplace as advanced software that can mimic many human functions and automate several tasks workers currently do. This paper introduces digital labor and digital labor platforms as well as their applications and challenges. Matthew N. O. Sadiku | Uwakwe C. Chukwu | Abayomi Ajayi-Majebi | Sarhan M.
