Abstract

In recent years, return migration from the United States has become relevant in academic discus- sions across diverse disciplines. One key aspect addressed by the academic literature is return- ing migrants’ labor reinsertion. The interest in this issue is understandable since, in general, returnees are relatively young and of productive age, and when they return, they need jobs to live. This article reflects on current discussions of labor reinsertion by drawing a comparison among three groups of migrants from Yucatan in order to offer an analytical approach to re- turnees' working conditions. The results show that migrants suffer from precarious labor con- ditions in their work places.
