History students may know we invited mexican labour to the usa in WW2 to make up the labour shortage.
10% of their wages were, by treaty sent directly to the bank of Mexico.
Those workers returned home and never got their money.
the explanation today is the government then was very corrupt.
the government then came from the same ruling party that has held power since the revolucion. it is power TODAY.

The US of A is going to compensate those cheated, to the tune of an average $3,200.
I agree they should get their money. They earned it, the program was legal.
I'm just trying to understand why Mexico isn't making good on it's own thievery.

This article from the Sac Bee says that the Mexican government is paying them, not the US.

"To settle this dispute, Mexico agreed to pay any bracero if he or a survivor could prove work history and file a claim in Mexico. For former braceros in the United States, that meant traveling to Mexico.

To settle a separate lawsuit filed in the United States, Mexico agreed recently to take requests from braceros at Mexican consulates in the United States."
