Human trafficking in the News

Take a look at this article of Human Trafficking in the news: http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/us_and_americas/article1836946.ece. The story in and of itself is shocking and something America really needs to see– all too often we think of trafficking as happening in “backwards” third-world country and having no representation in our own backyards. However, this is not the case and we need to start seeing it so that we better address it.

Peter, my professor who pointed out the article, also pointed out something even more disturbing to me– the fact that it didn’t make front page, or even close to front page.  This story was buried were most people would not see it, thus continuing the illusion that human trafficking is not a problem in the US.
