Mondelez International, parent company of Nabisco and the maker of Oreos and other popular snacks is in the process of firing 600 workers from its Nabisco plant in Chicago and sending the jobs to Mexico. The good middle class union jobs being sent to Mexico to be done by low wage workers in workplaces with lax regulatory standards. The good paying middle  class American jobs will be done by Mexican workers who can work for the minimum wage of $4.19 per day working 12 hours a day 6 days.  That's right $4.19 per day! But it's not too late to try and save these middle class American jobs. What we can do is not buy Nabisco products made in Mexico and only buy Nabisco products made in America. There are two ways to tell if your Nabisco snacks are made in Mexico or America. Check the plant identification code which can be found at the end of the best used by date. The two letters following the date identify the plant that the snack food was made at. Do not buy if the letters MM or MS follow the date. Do buy if the letters AE, AH, AP, AX, AZ OR XL follow the date as these cookies or other snack foods are made in America. You can also check for the words made in Mexico.  To learn more go to www.fightforamericanjobs.org . Frank Brennan, Business Agent, Distribution South
