Slavery occurs when someone is held against their will and forced to work without pay and under threat of violence.
Although slavery is currently outlawed in every nation it is estimated that more than between 14 and 27 million men women and children are caught in some form of slavery. Slavery can also be referred to as human trafficking, bonded labor, forced labor, or sex trafficking. Slave labor is often used for prostitution, domestic servitude, child soldiers, peddling, sweatshops and other poorly regulated industries.
