Cross-border Trucking gets the Green Light

(October 15, 2011) The business interests that purse neoliberal labor strategy (NLS) are relentless — the offshoring of US transportation jobs to Mexico has commenced.  The cross-border provisions of NAFTA have been enacted and both US and “Mexican” trucks were given the green light to cross the border and make deliveries inside the other country.  As we predicted in “The Looming Deadline” several small companies are going first while the transnational corporations (TNCs) are waiting in the wings and monitoring public reaction.  Lack of significant resistance will result in a flood of Mexican drivers working at Mexican wages driving TNC trucks to make deliveries across the continent.  If successful, this NLS initiative will be another blow to the working middle classes of the US.
