To Stop Sex Trafficking, We Need To Reward Whistle-Blowers

Hartford Courant: 21.June.2019: Op-Ed by Krishna Patel and Richard Schechter

On May 29, Connecticut became the last state in the nation to require nail salons, estheticians and eyelash technicians to obtain and maintain an operating license and for their employees to receive mandatory training. One of the rationales for this legislation is to make it more difficult for such establishments to be a front for sex trafficking and to prevent salons and spas from exploiting workers.
