International News Coverage of Human Trafficking Arrests and Prosecutions: A Content Analytic Study
Unformatted Document Text:  Further confounding exploitation cases is the notion that individuals may not realize or believe they are being exploited. For example, some articles reported that individuals agreed to be transported to another country in order to gain employment with wages comparable to those of their country of residence. 36 Based on the wages received for their current employment, it is unlikely that the trafficked individual would be considered a victim of exploitation in their country of origin.

Further confounding exploitation cases is the notion that individuals may

reported that individuals agreed to be transported to another country in order to

Based on the wages received for their current employment, it is unlikely that the 
trafficked individual would be considered a victim of exploitation in their country 
of origin. As such, the trafficked individual may not identify him or herself as
