    This report provides crucial insight into the experiences of these temporary workers in the U.S., the visas most frequently associated with trafficking and exploitation, and the barriers victims face in accessing help. Temporary visa holders often pay large recruitment and travel fees for the opportunity to work in the United States -- and the debts they incur leave them particularly vulnerable to being victimized. Traffickers can control and manipulate these individuals who have few options, lack familiarity with U.S. laws and rights, and face significant language and cultural barriers. The visa rules also frequently restrict their ability to change employers. But there are solutions, including: prohibiting recruitment fees, requiring accurate contracts, modifying data reporting requirements, registration of foreign labor recruiters, and more.

    Abstract:Labor trafficking is a form of modern slavery in which individuals are compelled to perform labor or services against their will by means of force, fraud, or coercion. The National Human Trafficking Resource Center (NHTRC) hotline and the Polaris BeFree Textline received 419 reports of likely labor trafficking cases involving traveling sales crews between January 2008 and February 2015, more than any other industry except domestic work. This report analyzes data collected from these hotlines, as well as open source data from legal records, government documents, industry experts, news media, and social media.'
