Reasons people would mistake indentured servants for slaves was because both were considered low in society, did not own many belongings, were not given much food or clothes, were shipped and both looked very similar in standards/appearance. Some see indentured servants as glorified butlers and people don’t realize that indentured servants had to go through a lot of the same trauma that slaves had to endure. Indentured servants and slaves had to be transported on ships. The voyage was often a horrible experience for all the passengers. On the ships the inmates had to sleep side by side each other with not much room to move.
Fields were abandoned and crops were not harvested. The lords that owned these dying lands were desperate for work. Taking advantage of the situation, peasants began to demand for money for their labor. For the first time, peasants were making working conditions and they were working for themselves. The higher social classes did not have as much control over the lower classes.
This demonstrates how the country’s economy suffered. It lost the territories where the sea ports stood. They were no longer able to trade as much as they did before. Because they couldn’t trade, they didn’t make money enough to keep its economy stable and
They had no way to escape, they were trapped, there was no other way to get back to their hometown so they basically had nothing else to do but work for the slave masters. This was also a sad story about the children who are forced to work with no mercy
The Middle Age was a period of great distress and economic problems for many serfs. The effects of the middle ages for serfs were limited food, limited space, and limited water. With these harsh issues, I very much disagree the way of life in which they lived during the middle ages. During this time the serfs were living unsafe lives due to unclean water and limited food.

Without access to resources of the land and insufficient funds to support a family, migrant workers are positioned at the bottom of the social hierarchy. The working class also experiences persecution from police as the law enforcement demoralizes
These beings are property and are stripped of freedom. Human slave, before they were freed in America, were forced to carry out household work that the owner did not want to complete. They received less than optimal living conditions and some were raped. The slaves were beaten if they acted out or did not complete the work up to the owner’s standards. Animals are kept in an enclosed area and commonly do not receive the proper food.
This is the phenomenon in which human dignity is being stripped from refugees. To begin, people displaced are left with no sense of security; thus, leading to a deep sense of hopelessness as their life and those under their care is all in the hands of other people. Next, refugees are often mistreated and have a stigma around them. One man interviewed talked of the shame induced upon him due to being a stateless drifter, although his position in life was entirely out of his control. Finally, displaced people cannot advance their situation as jobs are not viable and their youth are not receiving an educated.
Economic abuse is a tactic used to undermine the intelligence of the victim and to create a façade of superior and dominant behavior. Abusers hold their victim’s psychologically captives hindering them from moving up the economic ladder. The victims are often unable to hold financial independency and or unable to support themselves and their children without their abuser. Many of these victims have no bank account, no security, no work history, no credit or bad credit and no direction to escape. This entrapment very much leads to physical
