Slavery exists today

A couple, Mahender Murlidhar Sabhnani, 51, and his wife, Varsha Mahender Sabhnani, 45, were convicted today of enslaving two Indonesian women to work as housekeepers

Mahender Murlidhar Sabhnani, 51, and his wife, Varsha Mahender Sabhnani, 45, were each convicted of all charges in a 12-count federal indictment that included forced labor, conspiracy, involuntary servitude, and harboring aliens.

Prosecutors said the women were subjected to repeated psychological and physical abuse and were forced to work 18 hours or more a day.

This story is scary that this kind of stuff happens. Read the whole article via the link above about what the couple did to the two women. They did some really awful and gross things that are unimaginable.
