number of people in 'modern slavery' climbs to 50 million

The number of people currently enslaved in the world has grown by 10 million in the last five years, researchers from Geneva reported Monday.

The U.N.'s International Organization for Migration partnered with the International Labor Organization and the Walk Free Foundation, a human rights group, to produce the latest estimates of modern slavery.

That term refers to a spectrum of exploitative practices like forced labor, forced marriage and human trafficking. As of 2021, 50 million people were estimated to endure such conditions. Some form of modern slavery exists in nearly every country in the world, the report found.

Although modern versions of enslavement appear slightly different from historical examples, the two are interconnected, authors of the report said.

"In a number of ways, slavery has adapted and changed and shape shifted, but exploitation is still occurring on an unprecedented scale," Grace Forrest, the founder of Walk Free Foundation, told NPR.

"There is no region of the world that is immune to modern slavery."

A coworker just told me that we are modern day slaves living under the yoke of capitalism.  To say such a thing about people like you or I is a diminishing insult to people that factually are slaves.

Definitely a bit of a disservice to actual slaves

Let them sit for a week or two in their **** and p*** in a hot shipping container without food and rancid water then they'd get the idea.
