Forced Sex and Labor Trafficking in the U.S.

LOS ANGELES -- We like to think of slavery in America as something consigned to history books, a dark chapter set in Southern cotton plantations and the hulls of ships set sail from Africa. Flor Molina wishes this were true.

For part of the year in 2003, Molina, a 29-year-old Mexican, was held against her will and forced to work in a factory in southern California, making dresses from 5:30 in the morning until 11 at night, seven days a week. She was not allowed to leave the factory or take...

Some type of slave labour goes on in most western countries, due to the problem of illegal immigration mostly.
If you are working illegally, you have no employment rights.
The benefits for an employer using slave labour are massive - low wages, no beaurocracy, no unions etc etc.

Is this why governments are so keen to ignore the problems of illegal immigrants?

hi there

Yeahh this thing is realy bad over here with a lot of young vunerable ladies being forced into prostitution to pay stupendous fees to their ring masters who brought them into this country.What a terrible start to british life there having!

Southampton(not too far from me)has a large influx of polish people living there who are getting paid below the mininum wage-one has to feel sorry for these poor buggers who are being charged a lot for rent and the cost of living here isnt cheap too-so whatever they send back to their familes back home cant be a lot!

Your on the ball mate-if your illegaly here you have no rights so employers can pay what they can get away with.

This is exactly why illegal immigration is such a problem. It isn't good for us and ultimately it isn't good for the immigrants. Anyone outside of the law can be exploited.
What it is good for are those that want to exploit them. That's why the Federal Government doesn't wan't to do anything about it. The big contributors benefit from it. Anyone that thinks that illegal immigration is not really such a "big deal" or "problem" needs to take a drive around their nearest inner-city at night. Look at the faces.

This is been happening all over where is groups of illegal working.

Here in the south the despicable living conditions that many of them live in are just inhumane.

Many young women are kept in packed trailer homes with only one purpose, to satisfy the needs of the men she is living among with against her will.

I don't know how it works in the US, but sex slavery is also a major problem in the UK.
Young girls are sold into a life of prostitution, kept prisoner in deplorable conditions, then killed or turned out onto the street when their usefulness has ended.
This disgusting exploitation is the fault only of the government and their failure to rectify the problem, and their refusal to take on the criminal gangs that do this.

The age is getting younger as well - there was a recent story about a girl at 13 who was taken into prostitution and thrown out when she was `spent` at the age of 16.
