Abstract The dissertation explores and analyzes the intersection of the various systems of oppression, and privileges associated with the identities of gender, class and origin, experienced by women participating in temporary work programs. These workers form an international workforce of rural origin from different states of Mexico, which are used seasonally in Canadian agricultural farms, the service sector, and the industry of American crab. Circular migration becomes a model with restrictions on the movement of people, and as the power source of international labor for enterprises to be competitive. The research seeks to understand how employment programs make use of social categories to build a hiring system, exposing workers to multiple discriminations. These are women that even if they participate in documented migration; they have restricted labor rights and receive unequal treatment and unequal opportunities. The ethnography work addresses perceptions of thirty temporary migrant workers about migration and the construction of their multiple identities. The processes of globalization and the dynamics of post-industrial societies have opened up the possibility that it is the individual who self-identifies, constructs subjectivities or rejects the assigned ones. Therefore, the research aims to help overcome the perception of identities of origin, class, and gender as monolithic, coherent and fixed, to show them as an ongoing, fluid, and produced in various cultural spaces by the same subjects.
