If you use a cell phone in America then you could be lucky enough to be talking on a phone made by a third world slave women (yes mam) with her 2 year old child tied to her via a 2 foot rope because she is forced to work for no money, just room and board.  
My question is if our slaves are cheap, electronic components and chips to make cheap electronics are cheap, then why do we have to pay 400 dollars for a cell phone? 

  Where are the profits?  

I think maybe we should put down our phones and talk to our neighbors before we find ourselves out of work playing with our dead Iphones because we can't afford the monthly fees.  

The economic gap is in our hands?


 How many slaves work for you?  Probably none directly.  But if you take into account the usage of trafficked human beings in the supply chains that provide for the brands that you buy clothes, coffee, electronics and other items from, the number may be more than you think.  A new campaign from Slavery Footprint, a non-profit dedicated to ending slavery, and the US State Department’s Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons is out to open people’s eyes to human trafficking, inviting people to calculate theirSlavery Footprint.  Are you ready to find out how many slaves work for you?

Start out by taking the survey at SlaveryFootprint.org.  The survey will take you through a series of questions about where you live, what you eat, what you wear and what you’ve got in your bathroom and will then provide you with a figure—the number of slaves that “work for you.”  They’re hoping that seeing this number will make you think twice about what brands you’re buying from and where they’re getting their supply, and will inspire you to want to make a difference.
