Define slavery

Today’s Dilbert has our office hero confronting the CEO:

So you buy people and make them work without pay. How can you “spin” that as anything but slavery? Politicians manage to achieve similar feats of denial every day.

Maybe the CEO is going to maintain that the two acts (buying people on the Internet and making people work without pay) simply have nothing to do with one another: the first is just a purchase, a commercial transaction, and the second is just an unpaid internship; it’s an accident that the same set of people are involved.
