In their report, researchers from the International Labor Organization, the International Organization for Migration and the civil society organization Walk Free estimate that 50 million people are trapped in modern-day slavery, with 28 million people toiling against their will worldwide in three forms of forced labor:
17.3 million people are exploited at factories, construction sites, mines, farms, in private homes as domestic workers, and in other businesses.
6.3 million people have been forced into commercial sexual exploitation.
3.9 million people are forced by governments to work in prison factories and other settings.
An estimated 50 million people worldwide are believed to be victims of forced marriage and forced labor–up 25% from the last estimate in 2016– according to a new report published Monday by the International Labour Organization (ILO), Walk Free and the International Organization for Migration.
