  1. Fulltext. The health consequences of maquiladora work : women on the US-Mexican border.

    Article - En anglais



    As more US companies take jobs to Mexico, complaints are growing that the assembly plants (maquiladors) exert adverse effects on workers' health.

    This study assessed the health on female electronic and garment maquiladora workers, comparing them with women employed in services and non-wage earners.


    A survey was administered to 480 women living in Tijuana in 1990.

    The sample was stratified by occupation and length of employment.
