The “Outlaw Ocean” and Traveling Sales Crews: Labor Trafficking in the US Economy

From the pet food aisle at the local market to magazine subscriptions sold door-to-door, forced human labor has a real but often invisible imprint on the goods and services that cycle through the global supply chain and make their way to US consumers. In the year since the Urban Institute released its groundbreaking Hidden in Plain Sight report, the effort to combat labor trafficking has earned some victories and uncovered egregious new forms of this illicit practice. On October 28th, the Urban Institute and Polaris hosted a panel discussion to explore recent investigations into forced labor and policy solutions.
