Melinda Gates called for big technology companies to do more to help the world’s poor by investing in wireless access and other projects that can help raise living standards for workers in developing countries.
“What we can do is put some pressure on them to do things for the poor and do things for everyone,” Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the couple’s philanthropic organization, said in an interview. “We can bring some incentive to those technology companies to do the right thing, to pull everyone into the market."
