Modern Day Slaves In Thailand

In Thailand, according to The New York Times, August 2, young men and boys are lured into working in fishing boats as slave labour. Guarded by armed men, treated violently, where the sick are often thrown into the sea and captives sold like cargo, they are forced to work for nothing. The report states, "Labour abuse at sea can be so severe that the boys and men who are its victims might as well be captives from another era. This activity is driven by the demand for seafood across the world and, of course, the money to be made from it. What a different world it would be without money. Illegal activities would be of no use whatever. John Ayers.
