Slavery used to look like this, then it evolved into this, and today it looks like this.
In fact, there are an estimated 45.8 million people living in modern slavery across 167 different countries. They fall into three general categories: children held in the commercial sex trade; adults held in the commercial sex trade; and any other laborer made to work through force, fraud, or coercion.
The trafficking victim often looks like anybody else at work in a mine, on a farm, in a factory. Many are lured by promises of a steady job in another country, only to have their passports confiscated when they arrive. However, many slaves work in their native countries or even the cities where they were born.
According to The Global Slavery Index, these ten countries are home to the most modern slaves. They each suffer from income inequality, discrimination and classism, and entrenched corruption.
Number ten, Indonesia, produces about 35% of the world’s palm oil. The many small palm plantations present an immense challenge to inspectors trying to crack down on child labor. The country’s many islands are also home to tens of thousands of enslaved fisherman trafficked from Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, and Cambodia.
Number nine is the Democratic Republic of Congo. 20,000 of the DRC’s more than 870,000 slaves live in one of the most hellish landscapes on the planet, a vast ore mine in the east of the country.
The terrorist group Boko Haram gets overshadowed by ISIS, although it kills more people. When it comes to enslavement, one of its tactics is to give Nigerian entrepreneurs loans and then force them to join their group if they fail to repay fast enough.
Seventh is Russia. 55% of the slaves there work in construction. Foreigners are lured mainly from nearby Azerbaijan, the “stans,” Ukraine, and North Korea—thanks to this border on the far eastern edge of Russia.
The North Korean government is the world’s largest single slaveholder. Not only does it force more than one million of its people to toil in labor camps and other similarly hopeless situations, but it actually loans out some people to work in neighboring China and Russia, then pockets most of their wages. This exploitation generates about $2.3B each year for the Kim Jong-un regime.
The fifth most enslaved country, Uzbekistan, is the world’s sixth largest producer of cotton. It has benefited from forced labor, as the government puts more than 1 million people to work using threats of debt bondage, heavy fines, asset confiscation, and police intimidation.
Slave recruiters in Bangladesh promise poor families that their boys will be given a job, only to be enslaved on a faraway island and beaten to clean fish for up to 24 hours straight. Often, these fish are exported as cat food for our pets. Sometimes, the boys meet a gruesome death when they are eaten by tigers while searching for firewood.
Third is Pakistan, which has suffered through decades of conflict, terrorism, and displacement—especially along its northwestern border with Afghanistan. Its provinces have not raised the minimum age of marriage, which has allowed the widespread problem of forced and child weddings to continue.
Over 250 million Chinese have migrated within the country to find better opportunities, creating the ideal conditions for human trafficking. Each year, 58 million children are ‘left behind’ as their parents search of work in the China’s many booming cities. Every year, up to 70,000 children fall into forced begging, illegal adoption, and sex slavery.
And number one is India, which has - by far - the most victims of modern slavery. While economic growth has greatly reduced the percentage of its citizens living in poverty, the country’s sheer size still results in more than 270 million Indians living on less than $2/day. It’s unsurprising that inter-generational bonded labor, forced child labor, commercial sexual exploitation, forced begging, forced recruitment into nonstate armed groups, and forced marriage all exist in India. The government has already created many of the laws necessary to fight the epidemic, but the challenge is enforcing those laws and tracking improvements and areas of continued need.
as of 2019, America is the only country in the world that legalizes slavery. read your constitution and don't confuse slavery with poverty. those you are talking about can leave anytime they want. in American prisons, they can't, and they are chained and forced to work for 23 cents an hour. "home of the free.." my A**

@Zakary Loreto bro if you want to know more about China and India then don't watch Western Media because they are heavily west leaning. You will get proper information about these countries from Indian media or any Eastern Media Channel.
This is about illegal slavery, but legal slavery exist too. Multinationals moved their businesess to low income countries for a reason, low wages and less regulation. They let people work for very low wages and for long hours, and in all those hours they earn just enough to eat. Technically those people ar no slaves, but they don't really have an option to quit. They work hard to just eat, while the company earns a lot of money from those products.
Yes. It is true. India is really in modern day slavery. There is no labour enforcement. No minmal wages. I was thinking of india when you were reading name of countries.
I do not say india is bad. But really i find it bad about the situation of poor people. Politician and corparate are sucking the nations wealth( tax and nafural natural resources ) from middle class and poor people. poltician are in favour of corporate people. Agriculture is source of income of poor but that too is taken by big companies by branding agriculture produce from company farm. Small grocerrary will soon be over taken by big company owned brands like RELIANCE FRESH, tata's "MORE" super market. Reliance electronics, reliance trends. I think after sometime even the public toilets in street will be taken by big companies. Big corporates are trying to capturre every business.
Raage Abdi - North Africans working in Italy are exploited labour. They are not slave labour. Big difference. These Libyans may not receive a wage they like, but their employer hasn't seized their passports, he isn't forcing them to work, and they can leave anytime they want. They choose to stay because a crap job is better than no job. Huge difference between what is happening in sub Saharan Africa and Italy.
The truth is the customers for the commodities these slaves are working for are mostly in the West! So basically this is slavery induced by the demand of western countries hungry for consumer products. This also your fault for creating the demand that justifies the economics of slavery
National Patriot Well... No.
Only a small part of it is on European soil and the Turkish language is not part of the Indo-European language family.
Also there is a significant culture divide.
I mean - you can definitely make the case that Turkey is quite western, shares a common history and is greatly developed.
There is room for debate.
However, in my personal opinion, I would not count Turkey as part of Europe.
Anymore may feel free to disaggree however.
Lol. You really think the Americas and Europe are that green on the map in your thumbnail and they are the only ones? The west love their brainwashed standards without realising that they are more slave to it than they like to think.
This pod is too stupid. The white Americans freed the slaves if they didn’t there would still be slavery. It is not like black America threw off the chains of slavery. White America led slaves from their bonds. Tour the world you will see slavery not the.pussies that claim slavery for political purposes. Keep it up you will feel the whip of slavery gain.
the most disgust thing here is European's pretentiousness. European basically had invaded and pillaged the entire country or even the entire continent then left. Now basically those spoiled Europeans are bragging how modern their countries and economic prosperity they've got achieved. Well, they got those things because of their treacherous thief ancestors. They haven't even tried to clean up their own mess and simply blame poor African and Asian people.
@Alex Arauz giving someone miniscule amounts of money doesn't mean it's not a form of slavery. There was a sheriff recently who was complaining about releasing non-violent prisoners because they were losing their best workers.
There are western companies legally selling '' workers '' to other western companies , mostly to construction companies that are working in middle east . They collect these people from india and pakistan , sell them in emirates and saudi . Many of these '' workers '' suicide by throwing themselves under super expensive cars which are passing through the highways they are working on the construction of so that their families back home could get kind of a compensation money .
@Andrew Cowan You can't really make people commit crime without some kind of education that encourages such a thing, which doesn't exist in the US. It's more likely a cultural issue than anything else.
the most slaves in germany are from poland and czechoslovakia and they work in our food industry, mainly butchering chickens and harvesting thing that can´t be harvested by machine, like picking asparagus
About work labor in Indonesia,You can't just compare stuff here and the western world duh! I got what your point but govermant employe as we call( pns) only got around 3-5 million rupiah(230-380$) a month as the palm oil labor get 2.4-3.8 million rupiah (200-300$) a month and stuff in Indonesia actually really cheap you can buy a full meal with just a dollar and more advance for just 2 dollar,usual clothing and shoes only cost 5 dollar each and actually the worker get free rice supply from their employer every month. I know what your point about the video but you really should looking from the native people perspective the work is suck!sure but it's still better than working at construction site or as a waitres, it suck that I have to defend these palm oil industry that have kill wild live habitat and literally burn million km of forest just for palm oil plantation but they did give job to people here even if it's and underpaid job. It's sad it is really sad but sometime people don't have any better option than working as a palm oil labor
PS. I'm not a palm oil labor or work at these industry i work at my family restaurant and actually have a lot of palm oil worker customer
Ah speaking of corrupt evil politicians can we just talk about trump? I think 2e really need to talk about how bad he is. I mea Kim isn't very nice either, but trumps a racist or something.
Sorry I have a medical condition where ill drop dead if 8 don't slate trump for 5 minutes. The only 2wy to keep myself alive is to claim trump is just as bad or 2ore3 than someone who's clearly worse than him
@Cereal Killer Wikipedia: "However, and especially under slavery in broader senses of the word, slaves may have some rights and protections according to laws or customs."
Even if they don't like their job, they still do it, to be well fed and protected by their owner. How different is this from modern day jobs? You are dependent on your boss and work 8 hours a day to pay your bills. In army you have to live by the schedule the system forces onto you. In my country, if you have brother or sister, and are healthy enough, you have to go to army at least for an year. You can't refuse. Is it not like slavery for a year? In some European countries doctors do surgeries and give consultations for free, and they don't get refund from the government. Is not that also slavery?
Slavery does not have simple definition. Slavery varies from perspectives of different people.
DramaticChildTV In some places, shown in the video, there are hundreds of workers on the same factory. If they gad any problem with it, they would’ve revolted....
Also they are not working for free. They are well fed to keep working. Boss has no use for weak and hungry workers.
Any country with extreme wealth inequality and a minimum wage so low that people can not afford food housing and health care has effectively applied a socially accepted form of slavery to its own people. USA should not be at the top of this anti-slavery list purely because of this.
6:55 Germany should go more towards red.
Construction workers from Eastern Europe are lured to Germany where they have to take jobs as "pseudo self-employees"/contractors and rarely get paid in time.
They are also being put into small apartments where they often pay triple the rent of normal apartments.
Regardless, it was very different back then. Vikings who fell on hard times could voluntarily become slaves. Better to be a slave than to have no food or roof over your head. Or another example. Women may not have had it good in ancient Egypt, but they did have it better than women everywhere else at the time.
Facilities for business continuity may include alternate workspace equipped for continuation of business operations. Alternate facilities may be owned or contracted including office space, data center, manufacturing and distribution.
Systems for emergency response may include detection, alarm, warning, communications, suppression and pollution control systems. Protection of critical equipment within a data center may include sensors monitoring heat, humidity and attempts to penetrate computer firewalls.
Every building has exit routes so people can evacuate if there is a hazard within the building. These exit routes should be designed and maintained in accordance with applicable regulations.
Business continuity resources may include spare or redundant systems that serve as a backup in case primary systems fail. Systems for crisis communications may include existing voice and data technology for communicating with customers, employees and others.
Equipment includes the means for teams to communicate. Radios, smartphones, wired telephone and pagers may be required to alert team members to respond, to notify public agencies or contractors and to communicate with other team members to manage an incident.
Many tools may be required to prepare a facility for a forecast event such as a hurricane, flooding or severe winter storm.
Materials and Supplies.
Materials and supplies are needed to support members of emergency response, business continuity and crisis communications teams. Food and water are basic provisions.
Systems and equipment needed to support the preparedness program require fuel. Emergency generators and diesel engine driven fire pumps should have a fuel supply that meets national standards or local regulatory requirements. That means not allowing the fuel supply to run low because replenishment may not be possible during an emergency. Spare batteries for portable radios and chargers for smartphones and other communications devices should be available.
