Forced and Trafficked Labor
According to the International Labor Organization (ILO), forced labor is work that is
performed involuntarily and under the menace of any penalty. This is mostly experienced in the
garment companies in the developing countries where workers are brought to work with the

the textile industry. This has been an issue as the various individuals do not get enough time to
rest as violence is used as a tactic to make them work, and lack of the understanding of the local
language.
As a way of explaining this aspect of forced and traffic labor, the media are conducting

labor. A good example is given from the documentary ‘Invisible Hands’ which shows how there

ensuring that the working conditions are favorable as well as their wages. This is by promoting
the aspect of equality and integrity in the work place. The questions that may rise include:
