Nobody knows how to help, this is so widespread, people just don't understand. There needs to be more done to stop this.

Notice what is going on around you. Is the maid next door never allowed out? Does there seem to be a lot of young girls living in one house and only seeing going out at night? If in doubt call the National Hotline. They will help you work there. Very nice, dedicated people.

Agnes thank you for posting this, and David is right we can learn from this.
Here is the link to the pdf file listing countries using forced labor for specific products.
Table 1: List of goods produced by child labor or forced labor sorted by country and this is just page 1 !
If this link does not work out just go to the link to this story and follow down to

3. Be a conscientious consumer. Discover your Slavery Footprint, and check out the Department of Laborís List of Goods Produced by Child Labor or Forced Labor. Encourage companies, including your own, to take steps to investigate and eliminate slavery and human trafficking in their supply chains and to publish the information for consumer awareness.

There is so much more we could do doing and I will try to be more diligent in educating myself and hopefully our petitions will prove to have success in the lives of so many young children and women in forced labor sectors.

Great post, its something I have been fighting for a few years now and its something that is getting worse all over the world and no one seems to seeing it, its not in our news as often as it should be and in some cases the victims are treated like the criminal in US and UK courts, its something we have to take a stand against and fight with all we have. Keep fighting and taking a stand.

There could not be a more important issue, a more tragic human wickedness, a more demeaning violation of life and respect for others than using our humanity in this vulgar and life-altering crime. Our social consciousness must be awakened until this is no longer tolerated, in families, in relationships, and in every corner of this world where the base desire to feel physical domination and power as a means of distorted pleasure is stopped, because the whole world 'knows better than this!!!'
[it is a pervasive problem, and no one is perfectly safe from this perversion]

There has been a few reported cases here in Ireland, but I'm sure that there aremany more cases undetected.

Being alert to this, everyone can do something if they keep their eyes open just in their area alone. Thanks Agnes..
