Right Under Our Nose, slavery continues in the modern United States

Slavery, Poverty, and the World Today

In 2004 thee were well over 60,000 slaves in the world, as defined by traditional definitions, more than any time in history, and far more than in the 18 th and 19th century. That number is estimated to be over 100,000 today.

The number living in some form of poverty in the world is in excess of five billion.

The percent at the legal poverty level in the US is over 35%.

Each year over 120 slavery rings are broken up in the US alone.
An estimated 36,000 people living in America are slaves, even more made to feel they cannot leave or must "work off" a debt.

The growth of slavery, piracy, and poverty in the world parallels the growth of international business and the prosperity of both international and American business and and shareholders.
Kidnappings of Americans to be sold overseas is on the rise with high priced sex and even new tech labor illegal trades. Humans are increasingly looked at as numbers and a commodity in this capitalist underground world.

Which political party is fighting for the rights of the oppressed, here and abroad?

Which party puts humanity above profit?

Simple to answer.

Back home (where I grew up) think a few years back there was restaurant that was shut down because the owner had illegal workers working for her and also using them as sex slaves at night. And I guess one of the guys ran away and asked for help.
