First Monday of September we celebrate Labor day in United States and in Canada in commemoration of the labor movement and its impact in social and economic achievement of workers. We often celebrate Labor day with parade and barbecue. Unfortunately, a huge part of labor force are victims of human trafficking. They are often undocumented farmers, child laborers, sweat shop workers and sex workers all over the world.
