Affirming Dignity & Justice For Trafficking Survivors
Of the 21 million victims of human trafficking, 68% are exploited for their labor. In the United States, the State Department and Department of Labor have partnered to expand guestworker visa programs that trap hundreds of thousands of workers annually in bonded labor arrangements. Guestworkers face food insecurity, live in cramped quarters, and have limited legal ground to fight back against employer abuse. The visa programs allow employers to hire cheap vulnerable labor, driving down wages overall. Over the past 15 years, Donald Trump’s businesses have been granted approval to import at least 1,256 foreign guest workers.
