Pope calls employers who exploit workers ‘bloodsuckers’

ROME— Pope Francis on Thursday condemned employers who only offer temporary contracts or no health insurance to employees, calling them “bloodsuckers,” and saying they exploit those who desperately need a job by turning under-the-table payment into “civilized slavery.”
“Those poor people become slaves. We think of the here and now, the same thing happens all over the world,” Francis said in daily homily.
The pope complained of “rich people who exploit others,” saying they offer contracts only from September to June, and then the employees have to “eat air” from July to August.
“Those who do that are true bloodsuckers, and they live by spilling the blood of the people who they make slaves of labor,” Francis said, according to a summary of the homily provided by Vatican Radio.
As an example, he quoted the example of a young girl who once told him about having a job that paid 650 euros (circa $700) a month for an 11-hour a day, under the table, and if she didn’t take it, someone else would because “there’s a line of people waiting.”
These exploitive employers, Francis warned, “grow fat on their riches.”

Employers exploiting their workers are committing a mortal sin, says Pope Francis

Pope Francis' homily for his weekly audience in St. Peter's Square at the Vatican last Thursday focused on the exploitation of workers for profit, saying it is a modern-day form of slavery. In addition, the Pope has declared that this act is considered a mortal sin.
"This is starving the people with their work for my own profit! Living on the blood of the people. And this is a mortal sin," Pope Francis said at the service, according to a Vatican Radio transcript of his homily.
