Labor Trafficking

In order to entrap women, men, and children into labor or services, traffickers will use force, fraud, or coercion. They recruit, harbor, transport, or purchase their victims.

Where are victims found? Look around in these places: agriculture, landscaping, factories, hotels, janitorial services, construction, day labor, restaurants, nail salons, domestic servitude, illegal drugs trade, fishing industries, tourism, and traveling carnivals.

“Doomed is the one who builds his house by injustice and enlarges it by dishonesty; who make his people work for nothing and does not pay their wages” (Jer. 22:13 GNT).

Two years ago while on a missions trip to South Africa, I had the opportunity to participate in food distribution in the local community. The missionaries with whom I was working informed my team that the food had been purchased with Global Hunger Relief funds. It was a thrill for me to have a firsthand opportunity to hand out the bags of food and share with those receiving them.
