CWN Editor's Note: “In India, some 40 million children, women and men are trapped in bonded labor, a form of modern-day slavery,” according to the report. “Despite being outlawed, the practice, also known as debt bondage, remains common … Individuals [are] unable to pay off debts they have contracted, and their families are forced to work for little or no salary, often for generations.”
