Businesses Ending Slavery and Trafficking strives to create a world in which no one
is trafficked. BEST believes that every person has the right to be free from sexual exploitation and forced labor.
Jared Fogle was the brand ambassador for Subway Restaurants when he was caught exploiting underage girls for commercial sex. The negative press launched Subway toward a 25% decrease of customer traffic over the past five years. Thousands of locations have been shuttered and the company has battled several related lawsuits.
Subway is not alone. With 6% of US men buying sex every year and 2:00 PM being a peak time to solicit sex online, sex buying poses a risk to far more employers—recent cases involving Robert Kraft and Harvey Weinstein are examples.
