Shocking Facts About Legal Slavery in Modern America

There are many different estimates as to how many people are actually living in some type of slavery today — as it is often called by many different names — but most estimates put the number in the tens of millions. Regardless of the count, most people believe that if anything, any slaves within the United States are likely prostitutes or similar, and that hard labor slavery isn’t really a thing in the USA. However, it is not only quite a big thing, but it is a billion dollar industry that is legally sanctioned by the United States government — one of the only countries to legally allow slavery, though probably not quite in the form you’re thinking.
