Slavery of any type is horrible, yet it does seem to continue.
Although the following articles concerning Meshael Alayban, 42 - a Saudi Arabian princess - are to say the least, disturbing, many within the United States of America government - Congress, some politicians ... - utilize illegal foreign workers on and/or within their residences and/or businesses. They don't pay them proper wages and/or give what United States of American citizens would receive relating to insurances and/or benefits.
These workers often appear to be timid and/or scared to speak out against their employer(s) for the fear of being deported and/or imprisoned.
Reasons why these politicians seem to get away with these acts, is due to the ever growing wide spread Corruption within our our governmental structure.
As stated above: Slavery of any type is horrible, yet it does seem to continue.
Time to STOP slavery for all, not just for those who can be used for political maneuvering.
