Forced Labor and Human Trafficking


An estimated 20.9 million people are victims of slavery and other forms of forced labor around the world. Forced labor and human trafficking exist in every region in the world and in every type of economy, whether a country is industrialized, developing or in transition. These abuses affect both international and domestic markets, and no sector or industry can be considered untainted. Migrant workers are particularly vulnerable, often due to exploitation in recruitment and hiring.
