Human trafficking is considered a form of modern-day slavery that is widespread throughout the United States and worldwide. According to the International Labor Organization (ILO), forced labor alone (one component of human trafficking) generates an estimated $150 billion in profits per annum as of 2014. In 2012, the ILO estimated that 21 million victims are trapped in modern-day slavery. Of these, 14.2 million (68%) were exploited for labor, 4.5 million (22%) were sexually exploited, and 2.2 million (10%) were exploited in state-imposed forced labor. Human trafficking is thought to be one of the fastest-growing activities of transnational criminal organizations.
