Modern Slaveowners

Courtesy Kurt Willems, this is a cheery way to start off your week, but important to think about nonetheless: How Many Slaves Work for You?

Buying, selling and trafficking human beings?

If that’s happening, it must just be in wildly different cultures, far from my influence.

Actually, no. That smart phone. That t-shirt, computer, cup of coffee… That’s stuff we buy, and that’s stuff that comes from slaves. …

A free market should come from free people.

Among the more remarkable statistics in the survey: 1.4 million Uzbek children are forced to work in cotton fields – more children than attend New York City public schools.

Awareness is the first step to change. How many slaves work for you? For the record, my total is 32.
