About this product
- DescriptionMexican migration to the United States and Canada is a highly contentious issue in the eyes of many North Americans, and every generation seems to construct the rthward flow of labor as a brand new social problem. The history of Mexican labor migration to the United States, from the Bracero Program (1942-1964) to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), suggests that Mexicans have been actively encouraged to migrate rthward when labor markets are in short supply, only to be turned back during ecomic downturns. In this timely book, Mize and Swords dissect the social relations that define how corporations, consumers, and states involve Mexican immigrant laborers in the politics of production and consumption. The result is a comprehensive and contemporary look at the increasingly important role that Mexican immigrants play in the North American ecomy.
