The Crisis of Mexican Labor
In this definitive volume on the Mexican labor movement, journalist Dan La Botz concentrates on labor politics, the relationship of the unions to the state, and their relevance to other struggles for union independence. Prefaced by Mexican Congressman Ricardo Pascoe, The Crisis of Mexican Labor outlines the country's economic and political crises. The book also gives a complete overview of the labor movement from 1920 to 1987. La Botz chronicles workers' strikes and their results. He also demonstrates how Mexican union confederations, and their ruling bureaucracies, have clearly depended upon the material, the political, and even the military support of the state. This, the author contends, is the central problem of Mexican workers. They must develop an internationalist, socialist ideology and reorganize independently of the state. To do so will entail restructuring the entire system.
