Human trafficking is a serious social issue around the world, because it violates human rights. The human and social issues of human trafficking can consist of: Physical abuse of victims, psychological trauma and the economic and political implications of crime. The effect that human trafficking has on an individual and society is destructive.
Victims of human trafficking are forced into prostitution, work in quarries, and sweat shops, farms, as child soldiers and other forms of involuntary servitude. Children and young women are targeted the most, because of poverty and lack of economic opportunity. The trafficker will trick the victim with promises of employment, educational opportunities, marriage and a better life (OJP, 2005). Many times, once the trafficker has the victim, he or she will get the victim addicted to drugs to use as a leverage to get the victim to do what the trafficker wants.
