Intersection of Forced Labour & Sexual Exploitation

Intersection of Forced Labour & Sexual Exploitation

“The idea of treating other humans like chattel seems as antiquated as it is barbaric. But it is big business. Forced labour produces profits of about $150 billion annually, according to a report published today by the International Labour Organisation (ILO). Sexual exploitation accounts for a fifth of all victims but two-thirds of profits. The most lucrative region for this form of slavery, generating more than $30 billion in 2012 alone, is Asia.”
