The LWVHK visited the Justice Centre to hear about human trafficking and forced labor in Hong Kong.
Jade Anderson, the Justice Centre's Anti-Human Trafficking Coordinator, took us through the conclusions of the Centre's important report, 'Coming Clean' on forced labor in Hong Kong. Jane co-authored the report.
The report demonstrated that 17% of domestic helpers in Hong Kong are in forced labor, and 14% of these were actually trafficked to Hong Kong. Unfortunately, many more were in questionable circumstances, with many being denied their food allowances, rest, and salaries. The conclusions were shocking.
