The beauty industry's secret slaves?

Hello lovelies!

This is an extra post alongside today's beauty one as its of a sombre topic and I wanted to keep my blog happy happy! My Grandad always saves me newspaper articles that he thinks might interest me and this is his latest find, whilst it does interest me, it also scares me... 

It's about the staggering amount of people who are apparently being brought into the country for places that are less fortunate and are then forced to work in many of the new nail bars popping up all over the place in order to pay off their debts. It tells a horrid story of how they are forced to often live in the tiny flats above or near the nail salons and are paid an absolute pittance for the hours that they put in, all because somebody trafficked them over here and now these immigrants apparently owe them. I'm not going to act as though I'm totally clued up on the subject and have some vast knowledge of it's ins and outs but this story scared me, we have a nail bar sort of near me that sounds as though it could be doing something similar and that terrifies me.


If you look at the map you may see if one has been discovered in your area, just take care with where you go for all of your treatments.

Love and kisses
Becka
