I think almost every one of them were higher than the U.S. numbers during slavery. But the U.S. catches the most heat for it. Not saying it's right, but other countries need to be brought to light.
The only difference is, here people have a pulpit, and they`re allowed to use it. So it`s used erroneously.

Slavery is the ownership of another person as property. We all know this and confusing this by over-extending the definition to accommodate some personal or political agenda does their own cause a disservice.

As the world changes, so must our definitions. In the West, especially in the U.S., many would define slavery as what is was in the earliest days of our nation. But times change. That definition may not be accurate anymore.

For a frame of reference, at the height of slavery in the United States, there were about 400,000.

While I am NOT saying that slavery doesn't exist in this world, these people are certainly using a rather loose and all encompassing definition of "Slave" for their "Please Give Us Donations" charity website.

While I agree working in hazardous conditions for very little pay is heinous, it is hardly "Slavery" as we would define it.
