COVID-19 deaths are rising across Mexico, with scores of workers in foreign-owned border factories becoming ill. Despite government orders to close all non-essential firms, many such factories have continued operating–with little consequence.
Workers have begun to rise up to defend their health and their lives.

Congressman Chuy Garcia (IL-04), the Solidarity Center’s Mexico Director Gladys Cisneros, and Public Citizen’s Lori Wallach discuss you can stand with Mexican workers and fight to advance trade policies that put working people before corporate profits.
