Livable Wage Vs Human Trafficking

This article is one of many thousands (millions?) of examples of stories that begin with poor people, desperate for basic resources, taking offers of work and finding themselves enslaved. I can’t help but think that a livable wage, world wide, would take a huge chunk out of the human trafficking/slavery industry by eliminating the needs that make people vulnerable. It’s not a cure, but it is an absolutely necessary step – both for the reduction of slavery and addressing basic human rights issues worldwide (yes, that includes the United States and other first-world nations).
