According to Barbara Ehrenreich and Arlie Russell Hochschild “A number of young women and girls, due to dire poverty, are, knowingly or unknowingly, forced into prostitution. These trends are another part of the current globalization process.” The issue of sex work has been problematic throughout history and is still present today even though many try to deny the existence. Although slavery has long been abolished, many people still find themselves enslaved due to economic and social circumstances. Sex work is a major problem, in which many refugees seeking a “better life” end up at the mercy of those who are supposed to be helping them. Social classes are difficult to escape, especially when the lower classes have few options when it comes to education and other resources. Most of these countries are set up to make it easy for the rich to get richer, but it is much harder for the poor to climb out of poverty. I believe, that Sex work becomes not only an issue of gender but of class.
