And how, might I ask, did they find themselves in that position in the first place? If they were kidnapped against their will, this is deplorable. If they signed on willingly, knowing the terms of debt, then it is a different matter.

No wtaylor. Alcoholism and anorexia, etc don't get any less deplorable if they're voluntary. If you happen to have an especially strong stomach, that's a separate matter. Per the line: "forced to work as prostitutes 18 hours per day", i doubt any amount of legalism would help me to feel comfortable with that.
