Local and Global ScaleHuman trafficking is everywhere, in every country, in every state, and in every town. Unfortunately it is not a problem that is talked about in school or on a regular basis, the only time it really comes about is when a large event happens. In the USA, in 2018, there were 5147 cases of human trafficking reported, which if you break it down is 14 cases reported a day. Of those cases 3718 of the cases reported were sex trafficking, which ultimately in the United States is the one that is most talked about. In my state of Vermont, only 5 of the 5047 cases were reported in our state. On the global level, human trafficking is much larger then just in the United States. Approximately 40.3 million people are victims of human trafficking. Which means for every thousand people in the world there are 5.3 human trafficking victims. Of those 40.3 million people, 24.9 million are exploited for labor, while the other 14.9 million are in forced marriages. The country with the highest rate of human trafficking is India, where there are 14 million victims of human trafficking, this is followed by China with a recorded 3.2 million victims.Compare and ContrastSaid above, human trafficking happens in every state, country, and continent. The best way to compare isn’t just the rates of human trafficking from one country to another; it’s the reasoning behind why human trafficking is so high in one country and not in another. For instance a root cause of why sex trafficking so high in India is because poverty, lack of education, and the need to support their family. While that may be true in India, in other countries such as immigrants coming from Central America to the United States,

their reasoning maybe to seek asylum from the dangers of the war on drugs in some countries, as well as civil unrest.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
