When residents of a country are free to work or not work however due to their situation and money hardships they are forced to work in government created jobs which are usually not pleasant and do not pay well
A great example of de facto slavery is the "free trade zones" in Jamaica... set up by the United States government and companies like Tommy Hilfiger where Jamaican citizens were forced to work and taxed heavily. Even though the United States government created the free trade zone they pay the Jamaican workers in Jamaican money which is at less value than U.S. currency.
