Labor Trafficking in America
January is National Human Trafficking Awareness and Prevention month. This week we will be talking about labor trafficking.
Labor trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery in which individuals perform labor or services through the use of force, fraud, or coercion. Labor trafficking includes situations of debt bondage, forced labor, and involuntary child labor.
Often, not enough emphasis is put on understanding labor trafficking. From the San Francisco Bay Bridge, to the agriculture fields of Hawaii, an upscale bakery in Beverly Hills, small, independent care homes for the elderly, sweat shops in L.A. and a chicken ranch in Ohio labor trafficking in the U.S. is very real.
