I met a father and son in Jamaica that I would say fit your first description of slavery. They lived at the hotel where the father worked in one room that use to be an office. They had a hot plate for cooking and a bottle of water with ice in it for a fridge. They were just one of a number of workers that lived there. Now they were free to do all those things that you said, but the father was paid so little----oh actually he was not paid-----the owner considered the father's work payment for the room he and his son slept in.
Now this may not be as physically brutal as the slavery most think of-----it is still not what I would call freedom------nor is it anything any of us would want to endure.
And as far as this being the type of slavery that went on in Africa------it is still the oppression of one over another.
