Lured by a Job,Trapped in Forced Labour


ILO Animated Video on Forced labour

The ILO (International Labour Organisation) reports that almost 21 million people are victims of forced labour – 11.4 million women and girls and 9.5 million men and boys.  But how does this happen?   The ILO recently released an animated clip,  Lured by a Job, Trapped in Forced Labour, which depicts several conditions of forced labor, including misleading recruitment practices, harmful working conditions, substandard living conditions, in-kind payment, and passport confiscation. Forced labour is one motive for human trafficking and even individuals who voluntarily seek work may still be victims of trafficking if, for example, they face deceptive recruitment, endure overly restrictive work or living conditions, or are unable to leave their employer due to threat or penalty.
