Venezuela Imposes Forced Labor

Venezuela has officially reached end stage socialism. That means forced labor:

Don’t tell socialist Bernie Sanders, but in socialist Venezuela, where the inflation rate is forecast to top 700 per cent, the economy is expected to decrease by 10% this year, and the country’s ports have come under army control, laws established by the government have established the use of forced labor. …

Last week, President Nicolás Maduro signed into law the capacity for the labor ministry to order “all workers from the public and private sector with enough physical capabilities and technical know-how” to work in a government drive to raise food production. The laborers could be forced to work for 60 days, and that period could be doubled “if the circumstances require it.” The law also requires the agriculture companies using the workers to pay the workers’ salaries. The law imposed states its goal is to “guarantee food supply, social justice, and democracy” …

Officially instituting slavery won’t do much to guarantee a food supply or advance democracy, but it is certain to bring about still more social justice, defined as inflicting senseless misery in the name of leftist ideology.
