Brick Kiln slavery in Pakistan:In Pakistan, the brick manufacturing industry thrives on unpaid labour using debt as a way to lure people to work for factory owners.
They provide loans in exchange for employment. But once they’re fully paid, factory owners keep them against their will and use their desperation to convince them that their labour has not yet matched the value of their loan, adding interest month by month.
Working conditions are violated by site owners:
Bricks are made in many ways but usually by hand by younger workers under an intense heat which blazes throughout the year and worse in the southern regions such as Sindh province. As a consequence, site owners make workers toil throughout the night to avoid heat exhaustion, though this makes little difference during the summer season.
