Toronto police have arrested two Ukrainian men — part of a family of five Ukrainian brothers — who are wanted in the United States on human trafficking charges.
All five are facing charges of smuggling desperate young adults from their homeland and forcing them into bondage cleaning Target, Wal-Mart, and other stores and offices, authorities in Philadelphia said Wednesday.
The Botsvynyuk brothers promised jobs paying $500 US a month and free room and board, but instead paid crews little or nothing for their 16-hour days, the indictment charged.
It alleges the men lured about 30 victims from Ukraine from 2000 to 2007, smuggled them to Philadelphia through Mexico, and used or threatened physical and sexual violence if they resisted or tried to escape.
Smuggling for the purposes of forced prostitution is so well known. Were you aware that this sort of thing happens too? Do you think stores should be aware?
The stores ARE AWARE!
WAL MART has been BUSTED for this practice MULTIPLE TIMES. Its CHEAPER to pay the FINES and keep doing it They do NOT care
