Description/Abstract

This paper will demonstrate how human-trafficking policy in the United States is a problem, even after various efforts throughout the government. By using public policy’s rational model, this paper will provide alternatives to the current system in place on how to reduce the problem of modern-day slavery. I will evaluate each alternative’s degree of effectiveness, efficiency, administrative ease, and freedom. After evaluating all alternatives, this paper provides a policy for reducing human trafficking, which focuses on prosecuting the demand for human trafficking, as well as the providers. The implementation of this alternative would provide additional surveillance online, in working environments, and in medical facilities. Additional education on human trafficking would be required for doctors, law-enforcement agencies, and labor departments.
