Scientologists joining the Sea Org, a paramilitary organisation that runs the international management structure of the cult, sign a bilion year employment contract, promising to return again and again in future reincarnations. Scientology takes pride in the
hardships of Sea Org life, which include extreme working hours, virtually no pay and menacing penalties for minor transgressions.
Shockingly, there are dozens of documented cases of the Sea Org employing
child laborers, sometimes as young as six years old. Perhaps even more shockingly, governments worldwide have failed to act in the past 50 years and continue to do so.
This may sound incredible, but unfortunately it
is true. You can check for yourself. Just read some of the
horror stories of Scientology's
child slaves in the slide deck below.
