Homework to prepare for the discussion of Reader articles "Manufacturing
Poverty" and "Bio Invasion."
Discussion: The quiz covers both "Manufacturing Poverty"
and "Bio Invasion." For discussion, focus on "Manufacturing
Poverty," and please think about the mentality, views, and
goals of each of the following four groups: Mexican (maquiladora)
workers, Mexican city officials, U.S. investors, and U.S. workers
(such as those in Watsonville).
Carefully read "Manufacturing Poverty" and pay attention
to the actions and points-of-view of the following groups: the
Mexican Government, Maquiladora workers, U.S. Corporations, and
human rights activists. You will be assigned to one of these groups.
Be prepared to role play and debate in all four groups. Carefully
read "Bioinvasion" and think about why North America
has escaped any serious outbreaks when they lack inspectors.
