10 stories about modern-day slavery, which will open your eyes to the truth

In fact slavery has not been canceled, it merely altered, and now it looks like this:

1. Credit cards Peter Klyushkin gets 30 thousand rubles a month. He also has several credit cards with a total debt of 100 thousand rubles. For this service the loan on a monthly basis Petya pays banks ten percent of his salary: three thousand

. At the same time gradually repay the loan and to stop paying tribute to Peter moneylenders can not. First, it firmly holds the hook this technique as "minimum payment" if Peter will stop spending money with credit cards, he will have to live for a few months on half salary, which he can not afford

. And secondly, there are so many temptations, so many things-that-can-buy-for-money ... that Peter sees no other option but to continue year after year to feed on its banks fatliquoring trouble.

Fun fact: Peter has long been dreaming of their own business, while the profitability of thirty percent per annum over it would suit. However, to organize an absolutely iron gesheft - pay bank debt and start putting the interest on the loan in his pocket - Peter can not. The matrix does not allow.

< 2. Cars Kohl Piglet loves cars. Before he went on the subway, then I save money for Lada. Who moves to borrow Lancer. Money had to spare, often need to save on the most important, such as a vacation or doctors. But life without your car is no longer Kohl.

He should be given credit for a car, pay for vtyuhat dealer accessories and absurdly expensive insurance. He has to solve a bunch of small problems with parking, with scratches, with the replacement of consumables and warranty repairs. He needs time in the season to change tires, and three times a week to fill yourself full tank.

Kohl, in principle, does not complain. Every single cash injection into the car quite posilen. That's only if Kohl's carefully calculated the cost of ownership of his treasure, he would have found that narrow-eyed chetverokolёsny "friend" month eats a third of his salary and half of his free time.

Could Nick buy a Lancer instead of good old Lada chisel not to bother at all either Hull or rust / scratch or expensive spare parts? To throw the car anywhere, and in order to be repaired for a small price in a good service next to the house, no paper fuss and without queuing?

Probably could. But if you tell Cole that he chose the car is not on the level, Kohl's will not even send you to your advice. Kohl just do the surprised eyes and wagged his finger at his temple.

. However, the work and the alcohol so well structured his time that enroll in a gym he strongly once, and feats of strength after labor feats in the sport is no longer remains.

The question is, what Claudia chlorine with all the richness of choice bought the kitchen for a hundred thousand? This is the annual (!) With her husband salary. Thus any savings in the family is not planned, and so they had to borrow to complete the repair of the winter.
