During the time of the Middle Ages, serfs and peasants had no rights because they were the lower class people.

Many key factors led to the transition from indentured servants to slavery. Indentured servants became less cost- efficient due to the fact that land owners owned multiple pieces of land or needed more than one indentured servant to work on their land.

But as more jobs were needed on the farm, the more indentured servant demanded in wages. As the needs of indentured servants increased, the owners believed they were not obliged to commit to the request of their servant.
