    in my area who are cooperating with local trafficking advocates to raise awareness about human trafficking and who are moving away from the model of dealing with "agents" to provide dancers, hiring dancers directly as employees. I wasn't aware of the labor issues involved in what they are doing until recently, but many of the owners who are not on board with this effort cite their overhead as the reason.

    I'll alert some of the folks who make this their focus-this ruling could potentially have a positive impact in the area of human trafficking. Weird sometimes, how everything sort of works together when the better interests of employees are a priority.

    Solidarity.

    If you have come here to help me, you are wasting our time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.-Aboriginal activists group, Queensland, 1970s
