Many workers have been forced to sign resignation agreements and have only received 50% of their wages.

One thought on “Attorney Susana Prieto Terrazas’ historic reports on COVID-19 and maquiladora workers (videos in Spanish)

  1. I was born and raised in a border town. All of those violations by the Mexican government towards their citizens, comes at no surprise to myself and my friends, who grew up in a border town. The problem:is no one ever protests against the Mexican government violation of their citizen’s human rights. The protest is always on why we don’t let the illegals into America. Mexico is a beautiful country. If more protests would be exposed to the whole world about Mexico’s Inhuman practices towards their citizens., we wouldn’t be even discussing the border issues we discuss today. As for myself, I get frustrated hearing how America is always at fault for the illegal problems. Mexico has always gotten a pass, on being the main problem. Instead of being held responsible for the why of the mass exodus of their citizens to America.
