Summary
"Based on firsthand accounts, this book investigates the impact of the North American Free Trade Agreement on those who work along the U.S./Mexico border producing food, televisions, computer equipment, plumbing supplies, clothing, and other goods that are the material foundation of our lives. Journalist David Bacon paints a portrait of poverty, repression, and struggle, offering a devastating critique of NAFTA in the most in-depth examination of border workers published to date." "This book finds that, despite the promises of its backers, NAFTA has locked in a harsh neoliberal economic policy that has swept away laws and protections established by Mexican workers over many decades. More than a showcase for NAFTA's victims, The Children of NAFTA traces the emergence of a new social consciousness, telling how workers in Mexico, the U.S., and Canada are now beginning to join together in a powerful new strategy of cross-border organizing as they fight for economic and social justice."--Jacket
