Slaves vs. Indentured servants
By: Sierra Osborn
A person who is a legal property of another and is forced to obey them.
A person who is bound to work for another for a specified period of time
So are they the same thing?
Both have to work for that certain person for long periods of time
Both work for another person
Both get treated terrible
Some differences between slaves and indentured servants are that most indentured servants were working for other people, to get things in return like passage to other colonies, since the only people that could afford it was the rich people. On the other hand, slaves were working for other people because the were forced to as African- Americans. Also the slaves did not get anything in return for their hard work and effort.
Overall I would much rather be an indentured servant because at least they get something in return for all of their hard work and effort. Where, as slaves, it is not even your choice to work, you are forced to, and you get nothing in return
