Human trafficking is caused by many factors some of them being poverty, corruption in the Government, economic strains, and legal systems that are inefficient (Susan Freese 61). One of the main causes of human trafficking was unemployment. These women would be invited by Russia agencies to work abroad as nannies, waitresses, dancers, secretaries, and escorts. They would be offered jobs with salaries that were very appealing. (Human trafficking in and out of Russia).
As I mentioned before, that human trafficking mostly happens in financially unstable countries. Improving the standard of living is the main reason why people become a victim. The citizens of developing countries usually are illiteracy, making them easy targets for the traffickers. With some good persuasive about how promising their live will be, it is easy for them to fall as their prey. As in my own country, Indonesia, they are more likely to be seduced by the criminals for the easy money sweet promises.
“Human trafficking is the 3rd most committed crime world wide”(Yun). Obviously that means this crime is being committed all over the place. Also so many people are being exploited by this crime because these people are forced and that is a crime that’s committed so there are so many people suffering from this. Like seriously why we focus all of our attention to the cartels and illegal drugs but human trafficking is also a very widespread crime and nothing is being done about it.But with it being a widely committed crime there aren’t many people being held responsible for it. “Only 5 prosecutions in the United States for sex trafficking last year”(Kieran).
In the arlier years pre 2000 it was a subject that wasn’t widely known and due to this law enforcement and goverment officials treated the victim as a criminal due to the actions of prostitution and possession of false ID’s. However, after 2000 we can agree that these victims ought not be liable to such charges because this is happening out of their will. These vicitims are almost a vessel with a means to an end in the eyes of the actual criminal the trafficker. I was surprised to find out some victims had charges pressed on them by the state and that impacted their ability to work and obtain housing. It is good to see that all 50 states now have lasws that criminal human trafficking and as time goes by there are new laws and services to combat this
Therefore, this is clearly not an example of human trafficking. After analyzing each sources use of the three most important components of human trafficking, the better piece is clear. Forced labor, captivity, and poor working conditions were all used as criterion for human trafficking in Noy Thrupkaew’s piece. “Slavery in the Fields” failed to meet even one of these criterion. Human trafficking is a very rampant problem, and we should not reduce it with loose interpretations of what constitutes it.
People are employed and trafficked using deception and collaboration and find themselves held in conditions of human trafficking in a variety of jobs. Victims-including children- are occupied under bad conditions in fisheries, agricultural and construction work, along with other labour-intensive jobs and domestic servitude. Also, women and children are trafficking under the name of ‘’ sex trafficking’’. They are usually forced in sex labor, in other words prostution.. Women and childerns consists %80 of the people international trafficking actions. For every year, traffickers involve more than a million children in the sex trades .This prevalent form of trafficking affects every region in the world, either as a source, transit or destination country.
Those who traffic people strips their victims of their liberty and violates the right of freedom as proposed by the law. According to reports made available, between 2002 and 2011 out of 1000 persons in the world, three were in forced labor. The notion that its only children and women involved is a lie. Men are also victims of this trafficking. The victims involved in this trafficking represent a wide range of background in terms of nationality, status, age, education and socioeconomic but one feature they do share is the form of vulnerability.
People in non developed country like Nigeria, Pakistan, Burundi, Central African Republic, Comoros, Democratic Republic of Congo, Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Mali, Mauritania, South Sudan and Sudan all face this problem because the people in these countries are destined for better life which attracts traffickers. The need for better life makes traffickers very happy because it gives them the chance to trick people that they are going to have a better life if they come with them, this the Context of Vulnerability stage of human trafficking (Human Trafficking). Many of the victims of trafficking are not forced or kidnapped, they’re usually tricked into it and this the Recruitment stage. Recently poor Nigerians wanted some sort of better life because the cost of living in Nigeria is too much to handle, so many Nigerians were tricked, thinking that they were going to Europe for a better life but ended up being enslaved by Libyans. They thought that they were going to get a good job but they were tricked (Nigerian Migrant Says He Was Sold at Libya Slave Auction).
Sex trafficking of women is a complicated situation with many causes that affect women's decisions to work abroad. One of the many reasons would be a desperate economic situation. Women may become victims of trafficking when they run away from home or when they don't have other options than get into prostitution. Such as Ms. Roberta case, she was was kidnapped by a group of men in La Paz, El Salvador who sexually abused her and forced her into prostitution for two years. She escaped and fled to the U.S. and a social worker trained in child trafficking protection, identified her as a trafficking survivor.
Several young females were involved and they were brought into the U.S. illegally with the use of fake passports. They then used these fake passports to obtain visas. The National Immigration Agency and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security discovered them and a total of 74 suspects from the trafficking ring were brought in for investigation. Human Trafficking: How it Works: human trafficking is a very organized crime that requires a lot of planning, it’s not something that can be done on the spur of the moment. In order for the operation to work successfully it would require various skills.
