I know someone who works for the IJM, International Justice Mission. She told me that their focus is rescuing women from human trafficking for sex slaves. It's terrible.

It's so bad, and nobody seems to know about how much it happens, and it can be next door even, not just some other place.
Your friend does a noble job, and must be a god person.

This is a sad story, and not so uncommon, especially today.
People just taken, or promised work, and forced into slavery.

Poor, and third world countries this has been the norm for, well forever.
It should be stopped where it can be.

I'm not sure we are getting more evil or the fact that we are just more aware and connected to the world around us now. I'd like to think that since we are more aware and connected shining a light on all this vile activity will help put an end to it.

what it is is people are getting to be smarter at hiding it, and as long as the world closes a blind eye to the ones we know of the longer it will go on.
I doubt there will ever be an end to it, the people involved just gets some cushy jail time.

I know you can buy a sex-slave from Moldova for 500e.

The Saudi's are really bad at that Odinson, I read once that they have people that south, and kidnap 7 kids, and 6 will die making one Eunice.
They outlawed it in the 90s, but it's just kept more quiet now so the west wont complain.

Native women, children, and even babies are being trafficked in the sex trade on freighters crossing the Canada-US border on Lake Superior between Thunder Bay, Ontario, and Duluth, Minnesota.

Holy cow ... 30 million people! It's appalling that slavery can exist on that scale in this day and age. :(

There is more today than anytime in history. It's a shame we do business with them.

Well like the post a few up the native population seems to be targeted, and I'm sure immigrants are like all over.
It's really sad this isn't more known, and on the TV daily with a cure for this evil act.
We are all slaves in ways like to governments, and jobs, but to be forced to be a slave to someone is more than evil.

This is slavery also, and a sick issue I just don't get.

This isn't your typical case of slavery, but it's a type of social slavery that happens all over the world thanks to poverty.
It should never happen in the western world.
I remember when I was about 9, and cut tobacco for a poor farmer, it was brutal to the body.
I got sick, and didn't help much after. You would be cut up, and the stuff burned you, and then the worms would bite, and it really burned because they ate the tobacco.
