There is around 500,000 to a million women being trafficked a year and a lot of them never get out. A lot of them are girls at about ten or eleven and sometimes they stay there until there thirty’s or they are put in different jobs like finding other girls. In a study in 2000 they found 104 victims but had only 80 cases. Out of those cases they arrested only 55 people that had anything to deal with the trafficking but only 16 brokers. This is really sad because the other brokers can find other people to recruit.

It seems EMC has violated a few laws by discriminating against the women in their company. Female employees have complained that “EMC subjected saleswomen to demeaning sexual comments, company-paid trips to strip clubs, and retaliation against women who complained.” (Noe, Hollenbeck, Gerhart, & Wright, 2009) Other allegations, including managers withdrawing accounts female employees had advanced and administering them to male colleagues, a women’s boss looking past her for a big account because she refused to participant in smoking, drinking, swearing, hunting, fishing, and tolerating strip clubs, and claims that when the company looked at employment decisions they focused mostly on individuals’ sex, pregnancy, and marital and parental status, support these accusations.

Seventy-one percent of those surveyed who had quit college said that work was a factor in the decision, and more than half said it was a major factor.
