The emergence of global assembly plants is closely linked to the creation of a global female industrial labor force. Women and Work in Mexico's Maquiladoras examines this larger process in Mexico, where the maquiladora factories have turned to predominantly female labor. Exploring this dramatic shift, this book convincingly demonstrates how gender restructuring in workplaces and households has become a crucial element in the reorientation of Mexican development. Rich in ethnographic detail, the book uses the voices of workers themselves to provide an intimate look at how daily lives have been unexpectedly transformed by the national and international processes shaping the country's industrial transition.... an extension cord factory; Chamberlain, a garage-door-opener manufacturer; Molex, an electric switch and connector ... By far the most dramatic activity occurred at AIRCO, a company that also had severe problems during the 1974 crisis.
