WHAT IS MODERNDAY SLAVERY??
“Slavery is very much alive on every continent. In fact, there are more slaves in the world today than ever before.
Some people maintain that every prostitute is a slave; some go so far as to assert that the only present-day slaves are prostitute. This absurd view in effect consigns to limbo millions of men and women who are , by any standard, living in slavery but not working in the sex trade.
In Uganda, for example, when the Lord’s Resistance Army seizes a fourteen-year-old girl and forces her to be an unpaid porter and a concubine, that is, by any definition, slavery.
In New York City, in the 1990s, one crime family forced hundreds of deaf and mute Mexicans to peddle trinkets ont he subway. At the end of each day, if the men and women did not meet their daily quotas, their traffickers beat them or shocked them with stun guns. That too is slavery.”
