There are more slaves in the 21st century (some estimate 27 million) than during any other time in history. Many are forced into labor and others are sex slaves and still many others are children sold into bondage. In the USA alone, the government says, that annually about800,000 people are brought into the USA and forced into slavery. An average price for a slave today – September 19, 2008 – 80-90$ – the cheapest slave price in history.
