If you can quit a job, it isn't slavery. Stop it with the hyperbole.

My apologies, it apparently slipped my mind that all jokes or attempts at humor must be 100% historically accurate and factual. Ideally peer-reviewed studies should be supplied that attest to the genuineness of the statement as per the agreement on the laws of humor signed on 4/20 on the brony board by a bunch of faggots (presided by his lordship high God-emperor Phanact Esq.).
Also included within the contract signed on the aforementioned date, as we are all well aware, was the agreement that every "humorous" story, or re-telling of a story through the use of cancer overused bandwagon ******** memes absolutely has to be authentic and any liberties taken with the story only serve to hinder the hopefully humorous final outcome.
Once again, please accept my most humble apologies for my ignorance on ancient Egpytian architecture as i don't give the slightest ****.

I wasn't criticizing your historical accuracy. I was criticizing your implication that ****** toy factory jobs qualify as "slavery".

If you still disagree with me, continue to keep raging--but at least get the subject right.

First off, it was more addressed to everyone who had replied to my first comment .   
Secondly, you're completely delusional if you believe this isn't slave labor and i have no interest in debating this with you.   
Thirdly, it was meant as a joke, i don't really care about these people. I tried to make this clear in my previous comment, however since you failed to comprehend, i shall point out the section of the text referring to your comment: "..and factual".   
Now by "factual" i meant to communicate that the picture i posted may or may not represent the current state of affairs of cheap labor, as it may or may not be a.. fact.    
I don't know. Frankly, i don't care. I just wanted to post that picture because it seemed fitting.

The sweatshop jobs in Asia do suck. They have horrible wages and poor working conditions and bad child labor laws, the whole nine yards.

But they aren't slavery, and calling them "slavery" detracts from the cases of real slavery that still exist in this world today.

It's just a pet peeve of mine.

"decracts"? Hardly. If anything it grants the issue more exposure.
Face it, people these days would rather pretend that slavery is some long extinct practice that couldn't possibly happen in the modern world. Or perhaps it's apathy and not ignorance that prevents these things from getting much needed attention.

As long as people can get their **** cheap, they won't care that it's made from the solidified suffering of humans. And as long as they are mesmerised by the media they won't care that thousands of men, women and children go missing every year and are forced to go through the worst hell imaginable.. because we have more pressing issues, like which celebrity married who and dumped what and god knows what else.
I agree. This isn't de facto slavery. Real slavery is much worse. However this teeters on the very edge and isn't without its share of horros.

"If anything it grants the issue more exposure."

No, it leads people into a naive belief that poorly paid workers in Asia are the worst case of human suffering in this world, which is far from the truth, and takes the focus away from the most severe cases.

There's a simple litmus test to tell if something is slavery: If you can say "**** this job, I quit", and no one stops you, it isn't slavery.

You have to understand the sweatshop issue in context. They aren't forced to work there If they are, then it's slavery . They work there because their nation's economy is such **** that working in a sweatshop is their best option. Employers can get away with low wages which in some cases are actually higher than the national average and poor conditions because they know their jobs are in high demand.

As for real slavery: There are huge human trafficking networks that still exist in this world. Sharks prey on poor workers and lure them into loans which are nearly impossible to pay back. They then force them into labor--even shipping them to other places that's the "trafficking" part for them to work on farms or other sorts of labor. Others use their victims for prostitution. They're bought and sold on the black market like cattle. THAT is slavery.

Tl;dr: Worker's rights in the third world is one thing. Slavery is another. Don't mix the two.
