Juan’s Story – The high cost of cheap prices

We came upon this taxi driver who started telling us of how, in order to build his family a house, he went to Texas to cut rock for housing facades, using a legal visa provided by his employer. Did this for three years, six days a week, 12 hours a day minimum.

Hope you like this video, which I did last week in Mexico.

Let me know what you think, either here on in the Youtube comment box. Please share it if you like it.

    Interesting profile but the film transitions were rough technically with unexpected black screens and abrupt audio cutoffs. The translations expanded quite a bit on the audio. The point of it was that Mexicans hate working in the U.S. and only do it out of desperation???

    Thanks for this, Sam. Seems like every taxi driver has gone to “school” over the border.

      Many thanks, Sam. I’m grateful for every opportunity to learn about other people–and ALL your TRUE TALES are about people, each with a name, story, and viewpoint I might never know but for you.
