It is difficult for many to grasp the prevalence and scale of human trafficking, in large part because people do not want to consider that such a heinous crime could happen in their own community. Unfortunately, trafficking touches every state, city, and town regardless of how safe a certain area is believed to be.
In many cases, traffickers take advantage of hotels’ private and transient atmosphere to hide and exploit their victims. For any hotelier, the safety of hotel guests and staff is always the top priority, yet trafficking presents more than a threat to just their business. The victimization of society’s most vulnerable people makes trafficking prevention a significant moral and ethical issue.
