|Modern slavery - gang labour under the threat of violence|
How has it come to this - history reversed; a warp in the time-spectrum? I will make the case that the economic ideology of neoliberalism - the belief that the pursuit of profit unhindered by government regulation will produce the best of all outcomes for all in the long run - is responsible. We have seen the return of slavery because wealthy and powerful interests have taken to their collective bosom a
set of economic beliefs that lack coherence and academic rigour as well as being morally bankrupt. More on that later.
|Modern slavery - one recent survey indicated that 1 in 5 of the UK population have never heard of modern slavery - we need to know. But we also need to know about the weaknesses of the 2015 Modern Slavery Act.|
First, an exposure of the limitations of the 2015 Modern Slavery Act, with grateful thanks to Wikipedia:
- Addressed abuses associated with the Domestic Overseas Worker Visa which prohibits individuals from changing their employer
- Addressed the conflict of interest arising from UK Visas and Immigration being involved with the National Referral Mechanism which is used to identify trafficking victims and which acts as a gateway to support
- Extended legal aid to slavery victims in civil matters."
|Slavery is closer than you think - the Home Office could be doing more to help the victims - creating hostile environments helps the slave traders.|
