Human Trafficking, also known as the modern day slave trade, has become an extremely profitable business. An estimated 27 million slaves exist in the world today. Human trafficking is an organized criminal business involving supply and demand. Actors in the process include: the slaves/victims (supply), recruiters (wholesaler), transporters and intermediaries (distributor), pimps, and agents (retailer), and "Johns" and owners (customer). This poster explains the business model of human trafficking.
