The U.S.-Mexico Free Trade Agreement: Agricultural Labor Issues

The U.S. and Mexico appear to be heading toward negotiations on a relatively narrow "trade and investment only" free trade agreement (FT A). Labor issues will apparently be excluded · from the negotiations. Nevertheless, labor considerations permeate most other areas specifically to be addressed by the FTA. The focus of this paper is on the likely impacts of a U.S.-Mexico FTA on agricultural labor as it relates particularly to Texas. The paper provides background on the agricultural labor issues and then discusses the potential effects of a U.S.-Mexi􀃑o FTA on agricultural labor. FinaUy, priority issues relating to agricultural labor relevant to a U.S.-Mexico FTA are outlined.
