Modern Day Slavery

Jason attended an event in Parliament which highlighted the hidden nature of modern day slavery. Jason met with those who had survived and escaped human trafficking, including a man from Hungary who was duped by a job advertisement and upon arrival in the UK was forced to work without pay, open a credit card account operated by his slave master and claim benefits for non-existent children.

Modern Day Slavery

The number of slaves in the UK is not certain, but the Human Trafficking Foundation believes that there are likely to be up to 20,000 slaves in the cities, town and villages of the UK. Of the victims that have been discovered, 15% are known to have come from Yorkshire.

Jason hopes that these events highlight the appalling practice that is modern day slavery and push it to the top of the political agenda.
