People go missing for many reasons one of the most concerning is for human trafficking. The Missing people pandemic is worse that Covid 19! At about 600,000 people a year! (Missing People by Human trafficking Stats) Why don’t we give this as much attention as we have the pandemic! This is not acceptable! I can even imagine if one of my children was trafficked. What could you do? At best you can report them missing then you just have to wait. Then you are lucky if you ever hear anything about them again. Human Trafficking is a global problem even if they go missing in the United States because at some point most will end up in a different country.

These are our children this is happening to. Why aren’t we doing something about it? If we gave it 1/2 the attention we have given COVID-19 just think of the possibilities? I am starting  Missing Watch to try to do my part in motivating people to do something. Everyone is so caught up on wearing mask! I guarantee you if your child was Trafficked they wouldn’t have to wear a mask! So Quit whining and start finding!“It ought to concern every person, because it is a debasement of our common humanity. It ought to concern every community, because it tears at our social fabric. It ought to concern every business, because it distorts markets. It ought to concern every nation, because it endangers public health and fuels violence and organized crime. I’m talking about the injustice, the outrage, of human trafficking, which must be called by its true name – – modern slavery.”- President Barack Obama, September 25, 2012Missing Watch

Human Trafficking by the Numbers | Human Rights First


Human Trafficking Defined:

Under U.S. law, trafficking in persons is defined as “sex trafficking in which a commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such act has not attained 18 years of age;” or “the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery.”

Human trafficking can be a transnational process where victims are recruited abroad and transported across borders into another country where they are exploited for labor and/or sex. However, human trafficking can also be a domestic phenomenon, where little or no transportation is required.

A Global Problem:

According to a September 2017 report from the International Labor Organization (ILO) and Walk Free Foundation:

  • An estimated 24.9 million victims are trapped in modern-day slavery. Of these, 16 million (64%) were exploited for labor, 4.8 million (19%) were sexually exploited, and 4.1 million (17%) were exploited in state-imposed forced labor.
  • Forced labor takes place in many different industries. Of the 16 million trafficking victims exploited for labor
  • 7.5 million (47%) forced labor victims work in construction, manufacturing, mining, or hospitality
  • 3.8 million (24%) forced labor victims are domestic workers
  • 1.7 million (11%) forced labor victims work in agriculture
  • 71% of trafficking victims around the world are women and girls and 29% are men and boys.
  • 15.4 million victims (75%) are aged 18 or older, with the number of children under the age of 18 estimated at 5.5 million (25%).
  • The Asia-pacific region accounts for the largest number of forced laborers— 15.4 million (62% of the global total). Africa has 5.7 million (23%) followed by Europe and Central Asia with 2.2 million (9%). The Americas account for 1.2 million (5%) and the Arab States account for 1% of all victims.
  • Human trafficking does not always involve travel to the destination of exploitation: 2.2 million (14%) of victims of forced labor moved either internally or internationally, while 3.5 million (74%) of victims of sexual exploitation were living outside their country of residence.
  • Victims spend an average of 20 months in forced labor, although this varied with different forms of forced labor.

Human Trafficking is Big Business

  • Human trafficking earns profits of roughly $150 billion a year for traffickers, according to the ILO report from 2014. The following is a breakdown of profits, by sector:
  • $99 billion from commercial sexual exploitation
  • $34 billion in construction, manufacturing, mining and utilities
  • $9 billion in agriculture, including forestry and fishing
  • $8 billion dollars is saved annually by private households that employ domestic workers under conditions of forced labor
  • While only 19% of victims are trafficked for sex, sexual exploitation earns 66% of the global profits of human trafficking. The average annual profits generated by each woman in forced sexual servitude ($100,000) is estimated to be six times more than the average profits generated by each trafficking victim worldwide ($21,800), according to the Organization for Security and Co‑operation in Europe (OSCE).
  • OSCE studies show that sexual exploitation can yield a return on investment ranging from 100% to 1,000%, while an enslaved laborer can produce more than 50% profit even in less profitable markets (e.g., agricultural labor in India).
  • In the Netherlands, investigators were able to calculate the profit generated by two sex traffickers from a number of victims. One trafficker earned $18,148 per month from four victims (for a total of $127,036) while the second trafficker earned $295,786 in the 14 months that three women were sexually exploited according to the OSCE.
  • While sexual exploitation generates profits, forced labor saves costs. In one case, Chinese kitchen workers were paid $808 for a 78-hour work week in Germany. According to German law, a cook was entitled to earn $2,558 for a 39-hour work week according to the OSCE.

The Number of Prosecutions of Human Traffickers is Alarmingly Low

  • According to the 2017 State Department Trafficking in Persons (TIP) report, there were only 14,894 prosecutions and 9,071 convictions for trafficking globally in 2016.
  • 1,251 prosecutions, 1,119 convictions and the identification of 18,296 victims occurred in Africa
  • 2,137 prosecutions, 1,953 convictions and the identification of 9,989 victims occurred in East Asia & the Pacific
  • 2,703 prosecutions, 1,673 convictions, and the identification of 11,416 victims occurred in Europe
  • 996 prosecutions, 1,187 convictions, and the identification of 3,292 victims occurred in the Near East
  • 6,297 prosecutions, 2,193 convictions, and the identification of 14,706 victims occurred in South & Central Asia
  • 1,513 prosecutions, 946 convictions, and the identification of 8,821 victims occurred in the Western Hemisphere
  • Of the estimated 16 million forced labor victims worldwide, only 1,038 cases of forced labor were prosecuted globally in 2016, according to the US Department of State.
  • In 2016, the Department of Justice convicted a total of 439 human traffickers, up from 297 in 2015 and 184 in 2014.


Human Rights First’s anti-trafficking campaign focuses on disrupting the “slavery exploitation network” – the range of criminal enterprises that organize and profit from modern day slavery. Our goal is to reduce the incidence of trafficking and disrupt the business operations of traffickers, by promoting policies and generating political will to increase the risks, penalties, and punishments for those who exploit other human beings.
