Lecture: "The Bracero Story: Stolen Wages and the Struggle of Mexican Guest Workers"

Mon, October 11, 2010 • 12:00 PM • Hackett Room, SRH 1.313

The Bracero Program spanned 22 years, 1.5 million guest workers, and 5 million contracts, making it the largest binational labor agreement in world history.  Come hear Norbreto Flores, National Assembly of Braceros, and Stuart Schussler, Mexico Solidary Network, speak about this landmark labor agreement and how Braceros and their families are currently organizing to raise awareness of their contributions to the war effort and demand restitution of wages unlawfully stolen from them by the Mexican and U.S. governments.
