Slavery is forced labor. In some quarters, it is considered the biggest tragedy in the history of humankind. Slavery is perceived as degrading and robbing people of their dignity and right to freedom. However, despite the negativity associated with slavery, slavery is not necessarily a bad thing in its self. It enables people to live life with all necessities and sometimes gives meaning to life. Therefore, there are positive aspects in human slavery applicable to the contemporary society.

In contemporary times, more than 80% of all Americans live on minimum wages. They work hard every day just to pay their rents and pay for the basic commodities necessary for sustenance of life. The accelerating rates of inflation imply that people have to increase their work output every passing year just to survive. Literally, these conditions imply that people work hard for the basic commodities and shelter with no room for luxuries. In addition, due to low or nonexistent saving and requirements for specific skill sets in different jobs, people are stuck working in the same jobs for their entire lives. These conditions literally describe slavery.
