FROM THIS EPISODE

Now 13 years old and living in foster care, "Diana," a victim of child labor trafficking, recalls earlier years of working long hours with only one day off a week. Due to her demanding work schedule, she was held back in third grade, which is something that still troubles her. "That bothers me a lot because I didn't do anything wrong to deserve this." Labor trafficking is grossly unreported due to cultural isolation and fear. When customers see kids working, they assume they're family, In part five of Burned: Abuse in LA's Restaurant Industry, reporter Karen Foshay looks at trafficking, a form of modern-day slavery "hidden" in plain sight.
