Maquiladoras : started in the mid-90s, a policy between the Americans and Mexicans that allow American business in Mexico, to stimulate American economic development. They receive special tax rates and special subsidizes. They save a lot of money. All of these made the American Companies benefit. There are some cons however. The environment was affected because there was pollution, and the drinking water was contaminated. From 1995 and 1997, 9 women gave birth to babies with no brain. Studies show that the pollution led to this defect. Also, maquiladoras are bad for American workers because there will be less jobs available.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
