CNN reports on modern-day slavery in America; the issue of how "real men" should behave
CNN has reported on modern day slavery in the United States, especially in central Florida. I could not find the most recent story, but there is an earlier story about a woman who was brought from Indonesia to Los Angeles and who worked as a domestic without pay or days off for months, link here. CNN has a video about sex slavery of young girls even in America, which recalls Ashton Kutcher’s campaign, “real men don’t buy girls.” The behavior of those with demand is considered part of the problem.
The story follows recent reports about child labor on tobacco farms (May 17) of which immigrant migrant families often approve for family income. In their culture, older children are expected to help support younger siblings.
