Abstract

Athreya argues that the Central America Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) is s step backward from previous trade agreements that required countries to take steps to ensure that workers enjoy certain basic rights. Athreya describes the negative impact CAFTA would have on workers in various Central American countries. She argues instead for a new trade agreement that contains a strong and enforceable labor rights mechanism.
