    Slaves were excepted to be at the beck and call of their owners. They were paid nothing and often beaten by their owners. Livestock also was hit in order to keep a heard moving. Slaves were bought and sold and taken away from their families, just as livestock is produced to often be sold to others. Slaves were given minimal amounts of food, just enough to survive on. Animals often are fattened up in order to produce better meat for meals, so that is one way they were worse off than cattle. Slavery is an unfair and cruel treatment of human beings that went on for a long time and often the victims of slavery were seen as objects or pets that the owners could do as they please to because they didn't see them as people.
