The most common forms of modern slavery are sexual exploitation, enforced labour, domestic servitude,organ harvesting and criminal exploitation. Some individuals enter into work agreements willingly but accrue enormous debt to the trafficker in the form of food, shelter, documentation and travel fees. The traffickers inflate these costs and tack on enormous interest rates that condemn their new hires to a life of underpaid labour or slavery. Others are simply given no choice with passports, bank accounts and family movements all controlled by the traffickers / slave masters.
