“Because we’re talking a low-wage system that’s been in effect for a long time, with over 700,000 protectionist contracts, illegitimately negotiated and put in place, designed specifically to keep wages down in Mexico.” Mexico would have four years to eliminate the contracts made with “sham unions” over the years, so 175,000 such contracts would have to go each year, Trumka added.
