This offbeat film asks a simple question: what would happen to California if all of the Latinos in the state suddenly disappeared? The answer: The state economy would come to a halt. The loss of the Latino labor would have a dramatic impact in the labor market. The film makes fun of affluent Californians who must do without low-cost workers to help take care of their yards and homes. It also showcases a farm owner whose produce is ready to be picked without any migrant workers to do the job.
In A Day Without a Mexican we see both sides of the labor relationship at work. Demand and supply are inseparably linked and the disappearance of all of the Mexican workers creates a series of voids that requires serious adjustments for the economy. This trailer serves as an excellent introduction on how immigration affects the labor market.Available on Amazon.com
