Summary
"In Tortillas and Tomatoes Tanya Basok exposes the mechanisms that make Mexican seasonal workers unfree. She shows that workers are unable to refuse employer demands for their labour because of economic need and the rigid control exercised by the Mexican Ministry of Labour and Social Planning as well as the paternalistic relationship between the Mexican harvesters and their Canadian employers."--
