New Report on Labor Trafficking


Labor trafficking doesn’t get the attention it deserves. It’s much more common to hear about sex trafficking – how can your heart not break when you hear stories of young girls being locked up? And for some reason labor trafficking isn’t perceived to be quite so bad. But it is! There are actually more children and adults trafficked into forced labor than there are sold for sex. In recognition of World Day against Child Labor (which was June 12th), World Vision released a new report on labor trafficking in Southeast Asia. You can read a summary on their blog, or download the full report to learn the 10 things you should know about labor trafficking.
