Slavery in the US (Today)

I came home for lunch because I hoped for a power-nap (didn't sleep a wink last night). Unfortunately I listened to NPR while I ate some soup, and heard a story about the modern slave trade.

Modern Slavery in the US

Not in far-off lands, but in the US! Apparently there are more slaves in the US today than there were in the 1700s, when slavery was legal!! Even more disturbing is the cost of a human life. You should really listen to the story, it's amazingly disturbing.
