About this product
- DescriptionThis collection of compelling and original research makes connections in Canada, the US and Mexico among women who work in fast-food restaurants, supermarkets and agricultural production. The fourteen chapters take a critical look at how the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) has affected these women's working and living conditions, sharpening our understanding of how the workplace has been restructured in order to fulfill consumer demands for tomatoes, exotic flowers and fruits, as well as fast-food burgers and fries. Food activists in Latin America, the US and Canada propose alternatives to counteract the oppressive conditions of free trade and globalization.
- Author BiographyDeborah Barndt teaches in the Faculty of Environmental Studies at York University in Toronto. She has worked in social justice and popular education programs in Latin America, the US and Canada over the past twenty-five years.
