#Slavery remains popular in #California

Well into the 21st century, human slavery is still rampant. There are thousands of slaves in the United States, and that includes the self-proclaimed bastion of human rights we call California.

“Forced labor and sex trafficking are not just brutal relics of history or crimes that take places in faraway places,” says a 2012 report by the California Department of Justice.

“They comprise the world’s fastest growing criminal enterprise and they are flourishing right here in California.”In fact, California is a hotbed of human trafficking because of its complex economy and large immigrant population.
