For the record; I do not condone any form of slavery. This slave labor issue could go all the way to the supreme court... and then be upheld. This system is unfortunately built into the US constitution by the 13th amendment. It will take a constitutional convention to change this.

..in other words - it's a trap.

Profit is the motivation behind all forced labor.

Exactly this. Any work that needs completed is production, which directly benefits somebody. The exception would be something like breaking a pile of rocks for the sake of breaking rocks. Which; if you believe that's what their punishment should be you have the right to believe it.

But here is the thing, perhaps we could be providing some quality education or skills training..something (I don't claim to have the answers) rather than treating people as property. The moment you decide it's ok for a person to own another person, you ultimately submit yourself to the same treatment the moment those people decide YOU are the criminal.
