The clip associated with the Maquilapolis: City of Factories lesson plan shows Mexican women working at maquiladoras — massive factories owned by some of the world's biggest corporations just over the U.S.-Mexico border. Students should talk about why some corporations choose to set up factories in Mexico. They should also discuss why the workers continue working at the factories despite the challenges they face.
