To drive it home, the cotton field could have needed to be fumigated so the slave owner told the slaves to go home until the farm is up and running again. Hundreds of years later the owner of Sandals made 600 workers redundant because of major improvements need to be undertaken at the hotel. Examples of modern day slavery are all around us, we just need to be vigilant and see what is happening in our country and in the world.
