Maquiladora Industry: An Update from the Border. Fulbright-Hays Summer Seminar Abroad Project.
Rodriguez, Angela L.
This research discusses Mexico's maquiladora industry, its employees (mostly women), and how the working conditions and the living environment affect worker health. The paper also explores how the employers, mostly U.S.-owned companies, deny responsibility for worker health, safety, and well-being. This research examines how the continued growth of the maquila industry exerts pressure on the existing infrastructure that is already providing insufficient services. Statistical data are included where appropriate to support the information presented and provide opportunities for further research for high school students. (EH)
