Abstract

President López Obrador’s plan to reactivate the economy despite the ongoing coronavirus crisis leaves maquiladora workers facing an awful dilemma: isolate at home without a peso in their pockets or show up at work and risk losing their lives. The vast majority are forced to risk death, writes María Encarnación López (London Metropolitan University).
