Re "Slavery's staying power," Opinion, March 23
Benjamin Skinner's article is a useful discussion of the more appalling working conditions in today's world. Still, calling these practices "slavery" is a stretch. The practices Skinner describes are illegal in the countries in which they occur. They are also not racially specific. In contrast, the slavery practiced in the U.S. was legal in much of the country and enforced by the justice system.
