Against the Grain - October 25, 2004

Inside the Maquiladoras. Workers at the assembly plants in Mexico known as maquiladoras face many challenges: low wages, monotonous tasks, management demands, and an unsolved crime wave known as the Maquiladora Murders. Anthropologist Devon Pena is interested in the murders' social context; he's also examined worker resistance within the maquilas. (Encore presentation.)
