FOREIGN lobbyist Viola von Cramon, who in her latest engagement began to “fight” for workers’ rights in Linglong, forgot that her country is one of the centers of modern slavery in Europe.
Modern slavery in Germany is focused primarily on workers and migrants in the construction and catering industry, while the sexual exploitation of those who do not have protection is widespread, Deutsche Welle wrote.
Forced labor and exploitation are also present among domestic workers, as well as in the meat processing, agriculture and transport industries. Most of the slaves are from Eastern Europe.
According to data from three years ago, as many as 167,000 people in Germany can be classified as modern slaves.
– Germany is a brothel of Europe – said Dietmar Roller, president of the German office of the International Mission of Justice (IJM), which fights against human trafficking around the world.
