"At least 12.3 million people are victims of forced labour worldwide," reports a United Nations International Labour Organization (ILO) study. It is estimated that of these, more than 2.4 million are victims of human trafficking. Examples of forced labour - in-voluntary work or services performed under compulsion by threat - are prostitution, military service, and bonded labour for which workers earn little or nothing, since their wages are retained to pay off a debt. According to ILO Director General Juan Somavia, such labour "denies people their basic rights and dignity."
