Product Description:
Across the globe, there are predators who have no moral ground for their behavior as they search for vulnerable victims to force into their criminal businesses. From the slave labor of children to prostitution, victims are tricked, isolated, horribly punished, and trained to do heavy labor or serve as sex slaves. Illegal, underground, and dangerous, yet found throughout the world, these criminal businesses are examined in a CNBC segment that casts light on their inhumane and often deadly practices. Even in the United States these slave traffickers secretly flourish, especially in shady businesses connected with manufacturing, agriculture, sex, and hospitality industries.

One of a series in Crime Inc.: The Underground Economy, this DVD highlights specific examples of human trafficking. Girls in Tijuana, Mexico are pressured into working the dangerous and dehumanizing world of prostitution. A variety of agencies work under cover to rescue these victims and give them a chance at a healthy life. Children are forced into the cocoa industry along the Ivory Coast of Africa. Historically a region heavily dependent upon various forms of slavery, the Ivory Coast has come under increasing pressure from private, non profit, and government agencies to eliminate inhumane practices and use legal and humane methods of human labor.

Human trafficking has no geographical or moral boundaries This program by CNBC examines the global human trafficking industry which involves greedy people preying on the hopeless. Viewers see the impact of the global sex trade first hand including the sex trade in Tijuana where girls under the age of 18 are often forced into prostitution.
The current labor trade is also a major problem in the United States including the manufacturing, agriculture and hospitality industries along with the sex industry. Cocoa production has also started to grab the attention of human rights activists, as approximately half of the cocoa crops in the world come from the Ivory Coast in Africa, an area with a known history of child slavery. This program is not available in French speaking Canada. A part of the series Crime Inc: The Underground Economy. (44 minutes)

Segments in this video include:
  • Human Trafficking: Silent Epidemic – Human trafficking is a growing business and includes both prostitution and slave labor. It is easy for the human traffickers to commit their crimes, and it is also easy for them to get away with it.
  • Commercial Sex Trade – There are over 2.5 million people in the commercial sex trade and they create an estimated $32 billion in profit every year.
  • Forced into Prostitution – Some of the biggest victims of the commercial sex trade are seen in Tijuana, Mexico where prostitution is not legal but it is accepted. Many girls are brought to Tijuana by force. One girl gives her stories about how she was beaten and serviced upwards of 20 men per day.
  • Young Women without Protection – Young women who are under the age of 18 are given identification cards to show that they are 18 or older. This allows the sex traffickers to bypass the U.N. definition of a trafficking victim. The girls involved in the trade are not protected by the police.
