Modern Slavery

Who wouldn’t think that slavery still exists in today’s generations of the 20th Century?  First of all,  let’s define what exactly is modern slavery, “Modern slavery,” “trafficking in persons,” and “human trafficking” have been used as umbrella terms for the act of recruiting, harboring, transporting, providing, or obtaining a person for compelled labor or commercial sex acts through the use of force, fraud, or coercion,” said the U.S. Department of State.  Modern slavery is known to the duties such as sex trafficking, child sex trafficking, forced labored, bondage or debt labored, domestic servitude, forced child labor, unlawful recruitment, and use of child soldier. In a matter of fact, there are documentaries on Youtube about how the Myanmar and Thai governments takes part of this human trafficking business. Majority of the human trafficking victims are people who lives in poor environments such as villagers outside of the Capitals of Myanmar and Thailand. Below here is a link to the documentary about human trafficking happening in both Myanmar and Thailand.
