This week’s video is another case study, and it’s a really interesting one, one that most of us would probably never think to investigate. New York City’s Central Park relies on an army of workers to keep it safe, clean, and inviting…but where do those workers come from? The answer probably isn’t what you think. Hope you enjoy!
