It can happen here.

Via Feminist Law Professors: In the U.S. territory of the Marianas, an Asian woman might pay up to $7,000 to get a job in a garment factory. Since (thanks to the efforts of Jack Abramoff and Tom Delay) the territory remains exempt from wage and hour laws, she has a hard time paying back the loan. So she turns to work in the sex-"tourism" industry.

Think something like that can't happen in North Carolina?

Think again.
