How many slaves do you have working for you?

  • Find out here: http://www.slaveryfootprint.org

    A pretty well done survey, if you ask me. Also struck a few chords with me. Apparently I have had 20 slaves working for me. The fact that number is about half the average can be attributed to my modest lifestyle.

  • I got 21 slaves working for me on the survey.I'd better cut down on the electronics department lol.

  • Those light bulbs in your home count, too. Apparently pillows as well. Oh, and that toothbrush? Yup, an itty bitty tiny slave had its dirtied hands on it before.

  • I have 2847

  • do you really melodious?

    I have 41

    was that site made in c2?

  • 25, thought it'd be less. I believe, no girl could fit under 100, just when I compare my few shirts, pants, shoes to my ex's massive wardrobe. My one body wash and a rollon x countless hair, body, whatever wash stuff and other make me pretty things.

    I don't think so, but it certainly is possible!

  • I got 17 :) Maybe because I don't eat much.

  • Twenty-five slaves. Twenty-five slaves to make the clothes I'm wearing, twenty-five slaves to make the metals I'm using to type this, twenty-five innocent human beings to serve a man who sits at a computer all day and postulates as to the meaning of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

    ... The world's a seriously screwed up place. I just wish I knew what to do about it...

  • 26.

    C'est la vie.

    Though it is probably less as I did not take the time to do an accurate inventory of my weekly food consumption.

    Funny survey; I don't "Pay for sex" yet I somehow support sex trafficking in several nations. Wonder how that works.

  • Although it says 35, I have zero slaves working for me, they're working for the companies that sell me the products. In purchasing what I do, I'm already paying the "fair price", but it is the company who takes all the "extra cash" as profit. Nobody gains from this but the companies involved.

  • We could choose not to buy their products, but that's almost impossible. Those companies are always looking where to lower their costs for maintain competitive and we force them to do that by buying cheaper products and not asking where it comes from.

    I look at the country of origin when buying food, but not when it comes to electronics, clothes etc. To be honest, I wouldn't buy 50% more expensive computer just because it was made by 8 hours shifts/day workers. In fact, I'm not sure there are any companies not using(abusing) workers from developing countries.

  • What does the word slavery actually mean??.Are these people being beaten up and shackled to chains , Do they work until they drop dead??.Or are they just getting underpaid and overworked.There should be a governing body that watch out for these type of abuses but ,as they say money talks.

    I think part of it is working conditions the treatment of workers/slaves.

    In Burma it is not uncommon for workers to be forced into labor to mine rubies.

    In India, tens and thousands of Indian children mine mica. If you've ever visited a mine, it is no place for children.

    In Pakistan, it is not uncommon for a young girl to be sold into the sex trade to pay off family debts.

    In Southeast Asia's shrimping industry, laborers work 20 hour days and will be the subject of violence or rape if they attempt to escape.

    Those are just some of the info notated by the site. It really puts things into perspective.
