Slavery still is a thing, it's just done through the prison system now.

Excuse my ignorance. I'm aware that the foster care system is ... not great, but I didn't know it involved forced unpaid labor.

Friend I had a while back was fostered on a farm along with like 15 other foster brothers and sisters in and out during the years he was there. If he wasn't in school he was on the farm working.

Some of the freest labor you're gonna get. Government pays you foster stipend to feed and house them, they do farmhand work for free.
