COMPARATIVE REVIEW 5
On the other hand, Dr. Sifuentez's study is a profoundly individual history of labor
resistance in Mexico, which he follows starting with Braceros in 1940s to the Tejanos in the after
war time frame, to today’s greater extent of undocumented workforce
. All through, Dr.
Sifuentez talks about the uniqueness of the ethnic Mexican involvement in the Pacific Northwest,
withdrawing in various ways from the setup story focused in the Southwest. His book likewise
gives a usable history of the arrangement and achievement of dynamic associations that
consolidate grassroots community-centered engagement with work activism to serve the
requirements of powerless laborers, kin, as well as groups.
In summary, the real distinction in the historical backdrop of Mexican work as plotted by
Gamboa and Sifuentez is that, the previous author significantly traces how Mexican migrants in
the Braceros program experienced more oppressive wage frameworks, working conditions that
genuinely dehumanized them, solid racial hostility, and little acknowledgment for their part in
keeping Northwest agribusiness above water during World War II. These braceros, the most
activist of every single such worker, battled back with strikes. However, Sifuentez concentrates
more on how the exceptional function of Mexican foreign laborers, Tejano migrants, and
undocumented outsiders changed numerous verdant forests and fields in Pacific Northwest into
the farming powerhouse it is today. Sifuentez has made ready for researchers to more promptly
draw in with the manners by which Mexican and Mexican-American work fits into a bigger
ecological history of the United States. In any case, both authors portray how the Mexican
workers endured operating in the farms of the historic Pacific Northwest.
