LISBON, Iowa (PRWEB) June 04, 2018
Human trafficking is a form of modern day slavery in which people are bought and sold for the sex industry or forced labor. It is a global crisis with an estimated 40 million trafficking victims worldwide. In the United States, human trafficking exists in all 50 states, with the number of victims estimated in the hundreds of thousands. Approximately 1/4 of all victims are children. Human trafficking is highly illegal, but it remains a thriving, multi-billion-dollar business.
Traffickers and their victims often cross paths with truckers at truck stops or along the highways, giving truckers a unique ability to help fight trafficking at a grassroots level. CDLjobs.com is proud to announce that it has joined forces with Truckers Against Trafficking at the Copper level of sponsorship.
