For example, researchers interviewing traffickers of Nepalese boys (some as young as 6 years old) to Indian sari embroidery factories were told that the traffickers preferred young boys over adults because they were cheaper, their eyes were sharper and they could work for longer – more than 17 hours a day.

In both circumstances it seems that some workers are employed in highly exploitative situations, and some women are trafficked for this explicit purpose. As well as the standard isolations of being in a foreign country (not speaking the language and being unaware of legal rights), domestic work presents particular difficulties in terms of monitoring labour standards – individuals can be completely isolated, being the only worker living and working at their house/workplace.
