Why is "lo" used in this sentence?

I have the sentence:


"Él hombre está listo para trabajar, pero su mujer no lo está."


The "lo" doesn't seem to represent any object. All I can figure is that "no está" typically means "is not here" and that the "lo" is added to change the meaning to simply "is not", but I'm not entirely sure.
