Interesting points. I was always taught the definition of slavery was the practice of owning slaves (i.e., when one person literally “owns” another person).

I did not make the jump that slavery in this case may have been intended to include coercive or unfair employment.

Slavery is behavior ~ not just legal status.

It always involves coercion.
