Temporal workers programs. The Mexican case Historically, migration of temporal workers is linked with stationary jobs, mainly in agriculture. With such characteristics, there were several programs in Mexico (1942-1964) and in the Caribbean (1950-1990). This model has received a lot of criticism and rejection from both the sending countries as well in the receiving countries.  However, there is no choice, workers need to be imported temporally or definitely.  The United States is considering this option within a migratory reform. Jorge Durand is the co director of the Mexican Migration Project and the Latin American Migration Project. He has authored numerous books, included most recently Braceros (2007) and Programa de Trabajadores Temporales (2006). Lunch will be served.
