GRAPHICS BY JAY BOERSMA

A labour contract into which men enter voluntarily for a limited
and for a brief period, under which they are paid wages which they
consider adequate, under which they are not bought or sold and from
which they can obtain relief...on payment of 17.10s, the cost of
their passage, may not be a desirable contract, may not be a
healthy or proper contract, but it cannot in the opinion of His
Majesty's Government be classified as slavery in the extreme
acceptance of the word without some risk of terminological
inexactitude.
 
Winston Churchill, House of Commons, 22 Feb. 1906.
