We need financial support to continue our mission!
Our educational materials raise public awareness over the impact of NAFTA in people’s lives whether in the U.S. or in the global economy. We initiated our work to support the efforts of courageous working women active in the organization known as the Comité Fronterizo de Obreras (www.cfomaquiladoras.org) who take on the difficult task of filing grievances under existing labor law against multinational companies whose practices oppress women and children and create toxic work and living environments.
WOB’s primary mission is educational. All of the materials on this website are aimed at helping researchers, activists and allies of workers in the struggle for fair and just treatment in the global factories of the world. Wherever possible we gather unique stories from the voices of the workers themselves. While our focus is on Mexican laborers along the 2000 mile U.S.-Mexico border, the issues there can serve as a lens for understanding the concerns of workers in the global economy everywhere.
