Angela Guanzon remembers learning about human trafficking growing up in the Philippines, but she never imagined that one day she would be a trafficking survivor.
"All I heard about was human or sex trafficking—not labor trafficking," Guanzon, 38, told NBC News.
After graduating from college, Guanzon struggled to find work to support her parents and five siblings. With her father's health rapidly deteriorating, she looked for opportunities outside of the Philippines. In 2005, she was recruited to work as a caretaker at a residential care facility in Long Beach, California.
