6. Pakistan – 1.13%

More than 2 million people are subjected to slavery in Pakistan. Many are enslaved in bonded labor practices, particularly in brick making and agriculture. Debt repayment responsibilities are often transferred to family members upon the death of an enslaved person, making inter-generational slavery commonplace as well. Child labor is an enormous problem in Pakistan. An estimated 10 million child workers live in Pakistan, and they are more vulnerable to exploitative practices than the rest of the population.
