Slavery may have been abolished the world over years ago, but it still exists in different forms even today. Not being paid their salaries/ being paid too little, having to live in substandard and unhygienic housing conditions, having to work over time, not getting enough rest and being abused and mistreated by their employers are common complaints of migrant workers. Needless to say, this is inhumane and completely against Human Rights.
