We Must Put And End To Human Trafficking

4130 words - 17 pages

Citizens of countries around the globe would like to believe that slavery has been banished from the modern world. This could not be farther from the truth. Governments refuse to acknowledge the fact that slavery exists within their borders. Slavery in its most heinous form lurks in the dark corners of every society. Human trafficking is without a doubt one of the most monstrous offenses against human rights that occurs today. It is imperative for a more substantial effort to be put forth in order to combat the growing number of human trafficking cases. This effort must not be merely centered on individual countries fighting local cases; to see true results, countries must work together globally to punish offenders from each nation. This issue should be of great concern to people worldwide and the initiative must be taken to raise global awareness on this topic. In order to create a more secure and free world, a global partnership must be created and harsher measures must be taken to put an end to human trafficking in all of its forms.

Depending on the situation, victims can be prone to different forms of forced labor ranging from bonded labor to domestic servitude. Men are generally affected by bonded labor on a greater scale; nevertheless, it is not exclusively restricted to males. Bonded labor most commonly occurs when a worker falls into debt and fails to repay it. It is not uncommon for the captive’s successors to enter bonded labor as well, being that the wages are often too low for them to make a quick assent from their debt. Involuntary servitude is yet another form of forced labor. It often times occurs when a person has entered into a position where they are an unpaid servant to another. Although there is usually no contract or official working agreement in place, the worker feels intimidated by their employer and therefore feels as if there is no option of escape. Domestic servitude is one of the most commonly seen forms of...
