Human Trafficking - Slavery of the 21st Century

Slavery has long been abolished... Right?

According to estimates from the United Nations (UN), there are approximately 30 million enslaved people around the world today – which is more than at any other time in human history.

What is the situation in Austria?

✗ Austria also has modern forms of slavery. Some people here in Austria have to work under very degrading conditions.
✗ Men, women and children come to Austria in the hope of finding a better life here.
✗ With images of the "Golden West" in their minds, they commit to contracts, in which they often lose everything: their home, their family, their freedom and dignity.
✗ The profits go to those, who deal with human beings as a "commodity".
