What changes in modern slavery might we see?
The risk to victims of being unable to social distance is obvious, but the call for everybody to stay at home means the warning signs are more likely to go unseen.
Fewer of us are out and about and able to spot the signs and report suspicious activity.
Many of the sectors we commonly associate with modern slavery and exploitation are largely shut down (e.g. nail-bars, hand car washes…) which means exploited workers could be dumped, forced further into debt bondage or moved to work elsewhere.
Other forms of exploitation will be pushed further behind closed doors.
