Human trafficking and modern-day slavery are alive and well... and not just in Third World countries. Experts say that locations in the US are top destinations for human traffickers who bring thousands and thousands of captives to the country. As for slavery, all you have to do is take a look at cheap labour industries and you'll find labor exploitation. And the victims are not only immigrants - American runaways, addicts and the homeless are among the growing number of exploited individuals with nowhere to turn.
