Wage slavery does and will continue to exist in every severely impoverished culture.
Thank you for sharing the story Gunny.
A dear friend of mine was a child slave and she had felt the same way about her family selling her into slavery.
What else can we say?
I read this story last night and I was appalled at how dehumanizing the little girl was treated. She worked almost day and night and slept in a garage. Her own mother had dropped her off to work as a "slave laborer."
According to the article that she would have been treated worse elsewhere. Perhaps she meant prostitution.
Did you see how the woman who used the little girl returned back to her country after her prison sentence and continued her old ways?
I noticed that also. The two year prison stint did nothing for the woman's sense of remorse. Plus the fact the taxpayers had to support her in jail for two years. I did not read anything in the article where they had to pay for restitution to the state.
There should be a better way to curb such actions from happening. Fact is though as long as there is poverty in the nations that allow slavery as such the children are going to be the first to suffer.
Though again, I wonder to what extent child labor laws prohibit entry into the primary labor market in those countries.
children shouldn't be allowed to work agna, that is the point. Not 20 hours a freakin day for $45 a month!
I understand needing to assist your family by doing some work but you can't really believe that a CHILD is capable of the same level of work as an adult, either mentally or physically.
I noted she had what appeared to be a 9 year old slave when she returned to her home country....
The entire story disgusts me.
Human trafficking is a huge problem here and elsewhere. Human beings are being trafficked into the U.S. to work as slave labor in sweat shops, as prostitutes in hidden suburban brothels, and as maids and other kinds of indentured servants as this young girl did for years.

Slavery is alive and well in the world in 2008.
