Women on the Border
For this week’s discussion, please share your thoughts on Women on the Border, which seeks to advance the education, training, and empowerment of individuals employed in the U.S.-owned multinational corporations located at the U.S.-Mexico border (maquiladoras). Here are some ideas to get you started:
Discuss Women on the Border’s data on wages, the cost of living, and the impact of working in these industries on women’s lives. What did you find most surprising? To what extent do you feel multi-national corporations contribute to the situations indicated by the data?
Discuss the notion of corporate responsibility in relation to the actions of these industries at the U.S.-Mexico border. Are corporate actions at the border ethical? Are they moral? Provide a resource to support your position.
Discuss the relationship between maquiladoras and the immigration of undocumented workers. Do border conditions encourage that immigration or discourage it?
Discuss possible government regulations that might improve the situations of women working in maquiladoras. Which governments would need to implement the regulations? Does this seem politically feasible?
