The Working Poor in Mexico

the working poor in mexico special research report Photo by
Behind the escalating political rhetoric and ugly racial profiling of Arizona’s immigration law and mid-term election politicking there are still hundreds of men, women and children dying along our southern border. The Arizona Daily Star reports that this month may set the July record for the number of deaths.  Typically, July is the deadliest month in the Arizona desert for migrants. By mid-July the Pima County sheriff’s office had already recovered 38 bodies. The national media and politicians seldom ever acknowledge the humanity of these people dying of thirst in the Arizona desert or by drowning in the Rio Grande. Many of ...
the marshmallow man speaks for all liberals
Ok, first I’d like to applaud and welcome this new-found concern among conservatives for the working poor. This is as interesting a twist as “liberals siding with big business.” At the macro level, the impact of immigration is less discernible, and it’s likely that 6 years of a waffling economy has had a larger impact on low job growth and wage increases. However, immigrants from Latin America are largely unskilled laborers, so it’s reasonable to assume that unskilled workers with US citizenship rights would be the first to feel the effects of these undocumented workers. Having said that, we ought to keep in mind ... market research, surveys and trends

'The Well From Hell'
BP and the government decided to leave the cap closed on the company’s stricken oil well on the Gulf of Mexico’s floor, preventing any oil or gas from escaping the well. Behind the News Initially, the cap’s valves were closed as a test to see if the well was intact below the sea floor, and the plan was to reopen them afterward to relieve the pressure, with escaping oil collected at the surface. Methane gas was found seeping up two miles away, but scientists concluded it was a natural occurrence. With the well apparently holding tight under the pressure, Thad W. Allen, the retired Coast Guard admiral in charge ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
New scrutiny for drilling
HARRISBURG, Pa. -- So vast is the wealth of natural gas locked into dense rock deep beneath Pennsylvania, New York, West Virginia and Ohio that some geologists estimate it's enough to supply the entire East Coast for 50 years. But freeing it requires a powerful drilling process called hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking," using millions of gallons of water brewed with toxic chemicals, which some fear could pollute water above and below ground and deplete aquifers. As gas drillers swarm to the lucrative Marcellus Shale region and blast into other shale reserves around the country, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Patterns of Mexican Migration from Mexico to the United States
Mexican migration to the United States has been a major area of contention for U.S.-Mexico bilateral relations since the 1920s. Despite restrictive U.S. immigration law, Mexico continues to be the leading country of origin for legal and illegal migrant workers into the United States. Mexico�s migration was initially encouraged by the United States with the construction of the railroad system across borders and with the Bracero Accords in which Mexican workers were recruited to help ease labor force shortages in their economy that resulted due to a number of factors. However, in periods of adequate labor supply, U.S. immigration ...
