Your asking the slavers to regulate themselves? It's precisely the big corporations and the oligarchs in power who are enslaving humans for profit,they're not going to stop. On the contrary,slavery us their vision for the whole of humanity,that is the goal.

In order to not be known as a place for slavery, all fingers are pointing at Qatar. Pointing fingers won't solve the problem. Act together is the way to solve the problem. Rules, regulations, etc.

Qatar the wealthiest country in the world by GDP per-capita in (PPP) terms has been well documented on the horrible treatment of foreign migrant workers from poorer countries in which Qatar has been described as a Modern-day Slave State with no Labor unions there.

Amar Nadh says:

Crow29Darkness says:

Mostly due to Third World Immigrants in the West using recent migrants from their own home countries as cheap slave labor.

One major reason why annual Immigration to all Western countries should be cut severely.
