  • Labor trafficking in US widespread but often ignored – report

    Reuters - 11/05/2014

    Millions of slaves are working in the United States in homes, fields, restaurants and building sites, undetected by labour and immigration officials whose lax enforcement allows trafficking to flourish, according to a new study.

    “Labour trafficking is hidden in plain sight in this country,” Meredith Dank, co-author of the report, said in an interview.

    Researchers at the Urban Institute and Northeastern University examined 122 cases of labour trafficking in the United States and interviewed 28 survivors, as well as legal advocates, social workers and law enforcement officers.
