The Invisible Slaves of the Modern World
The irony is that no international or national law define slavery, but the International Labor Organization (ILO) notes that the term slavery covers practices such as forced labor, debt bondage, forced marriage and human trafficking, referring to situations of exploitation that a person cannot refuse or leave because of threats, violence, coercion, deception and/or abuse of power.
Modern-day slaves are virtually everywhere in the world, but the gravity of inhuman slavery is usually seen in less developed third world countries like Bangladesh.
But these people caught in slavery are not cared for by society or the state, and there is little or no talk about ending their plight. They are the invisible slaves of the modern world.
