Transnational activities affect every field of society, thus, the growth of the, local,
the city and the “reorder” of the urban life are closely linked to economic, technological,
political, symbolic and transnational formations and transformations. The presence of
the maquiladora industry in Cd. Juárez has impacted the border population in ways that
go by far beyond the economics of the city. La maquiladora is experienced in the
everyday life of the city as the main economical activity that has a substantial role in the
job structure. La maquiladora also serves as an important political force that has a wide
social impact on the local society. The presence of the maquiladora in the everyday life
of Juarenses is tangible as well as symbolic. The urban development of the city is
centered on the development of this industry. The urban infrastructure of the city is
located where the industry is located while the deficit of basic urban infrastructure is

maquiladora. La maquiladora is experienced inside as well as outside the work place.
Thus in order to understand the social, cultural, political and economic dynamics of the
every day life in Juárez it is imperative to understand to analyze the maquiladora
