Has slavery really ended?

It depends on the person you ask. The true definition of slavery is:

"Slavery : (noun)
1: the state of being under the control of another person [syn: bondage, thrall, thralldom, thraldom]
2: the practice of owning slaves [syn: slave holding]
3: work done under harsh conditions for little or no pay"

Slavery is the owning of another human being. I say yes there is still slavery in the world. There shouldn't be in my opinion. But there will always be a person who thinks its reasonable to hold another human without another thought.
So to answer this question.
Yes. There (in my opinion) will always be in this world.
