Next breakfast discussion:
Thursday, Nov. 1, 2018

(to RSVP, please scroll down to blue RSVP button)

Human trafficking is a multi-billion dollar industry affecting millions worldwide; no industry or country is immune from this problem.

The state of Florida ranked third in the United States for the number of active criminal human trafficking cases in the federal court system last year, according to data released recently by the Human Trafficking Institute.

They come from places like Vietnam, China, Mexico and Guatemala, lured by promises of better-paying jobs and legal immigration. Instead, they’re smuggled into the U.S., forced to work around the clock in the sex industry, in the farming/agriculture industry, and in hotels, restaurants, bars and food trucks as bus/wait staff and cooks, and housed in cramped living quarters.

For this, they must pay exorbitant fees that become an insurmountable debt, even as their pay is often withheld, stolen or unfairly docked.

Trafficking networks often rely on legitimate businesses, entrapping many workers in a form of modern slavery. Our experienced and articulate panel spells out why and how we are victims of this pervasive onslaught on our shores.
