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).

I’ve always admired Melanie in the movie Gone with the Wind. She is sweet and soft-spoken, loves everyone, and gives to those in need. Melanie is a fictional character, but there are real women from the past and present worthy of our admiration.
