Just over the border in Mexico is an area peppered with maquiladoras: massive factories often owned by the world's largest multinational corporations. Carmen and Lourdes work at maquiladoras in Tijuana, where each day they confront labor violations, environmental devastation and urban chaos.
"Maquilapolis: City of Factories" premiered on the P.O.V. series on Oct. 10, 2006.
