EMPLOYEMENT IS FREELY CHOSEN
Simple as that. No person shall be forced to work and they should be free to leave their employment at any time.
The ILO defines forced labor in their 1930 Convention (No.29) as “all work or service which is exacted from any person under the menace of any penalty and for which the said person has not offered himself voluntarily.”
The 1957 Convention (No.105) summarizes that you cannot use discipline to force labour over someones “racial, social, national or religious..” views. This includes political views.
Mandatory for all members on Day 1.
ILO estimates show that 24.9 million people around the world are still subjected to it (forced labor). (ILO)
“Forced labour in the private economy generates some US$ 150 billion in illegal profits every year: two thirds of the estimated total (or US$ 99 billion) comes from commercial sexual exploitation, while another US$ 51 billion is a result from forced economic exploitation in domestic work, agriculture and other economic activities.” (ILO)
