Case studies have been included in this book, along with pertinent news items, and the latest information available from our government. Victims of human trafficking are enslaved, subjected to limited movement, isolation, or had their documents confiscated. Children are used for labor in sweatshops, migrant farming, construction, factories, fisheries, panhandling, janitorial jobs, hotel or tourist industries, restaurant services, domestic servitude, child camel jockeys, child soldiers, and for child sex tourism. Children who are victimized by human traffickers are often mistaken for prostitutes, runaways, migrant farm workers, or domestic servants. It can be difficult to pick up on the subtle signals, however, if you look closely and ask the right questions, you may uncover children who are being exploited. Children who are exploited for labor are usually hungry or malnourished to the extent that they are poorly developed and may never reach their full height or development. Children who are forced into the commercial sex trade may show signs of having sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV/AIDS, kidney problems, and urinary tract infections.
