According to the International Labor Organization, more than 232 million people across the globe live outside their countries of origin, and migrant workers and their families account for 90 percent of all international migration.

Such movement of workers has become increasingly important to the prosperity of the global economy, and to the livelihood of individual workers seeking opportunity. Unfortunately, as more individuals move for work, and more employers seek global talent, many migrants find themselves entangled in a “grey” market run by unscrupulous recruiters and employers. As a result, they can face abusive conditions that amount to modern-day slavery.
