Ban Ki-Moon's equivalents of slavery

"Secretary-General, in Message to Mark International Day for Slavery’s Abolition, Says List of Similarly Abhorrent Modern Practices Is ‘Shockingly Long’.  Source

Really?

"In our globalized world, new forms of slavery have taken shape.  The list of abhorrent practices, new and old, is now shockingly long, and includes debt bondage, serfdom, forced labour, child labour and servitude, trafficking of persons and human organs, sexual slavery, the use of child soldiers, the sale of children, forced marriage and the sale of wives, and the exploitation of prostitution".

Not really in the same league as slavery, are they?
