Sex Slaves and Human Trafficking... From Ukraine to USA

MSNBC's Meredith Vieira goes inside the human trafficking and underground prostitution scene in the United States in “MSNBC Undercover: Sex Slaves in America,” which premiered Monday, Dec. 3 on MSNBC. One episode is about two Ukrainian "Work & Travel" students who looked forward to working in a restaraunt in Virginia Beach, VA but they were forced to work in the strip club in Detroit, MI.  Here is a link to the video.
Unfortunately, the human trafficking is rampant in Ukraine and other Eastern European countries. It does not look like the government does anything to fight it.
