The infants salaried labor existing in the exporting farming of the Mexicali Valley, is part of the macroeconomic processes linked to the free trade politics and to the economy's globalization. We are analyzing it as a result of the damage of life and conditions of work of the country families, in a labor market that looks for cheap labor, in this concrete area of the world market. Nevertheless this job is centered at the Mexicali Valley, we are presenting some figures from the San Quintín Valley, another Baja California farming center where infants job appear. We will analyze the role of infant jobs within the economy, the environment where it is developed, and the consequences that it brings to them, such as their exclusion from school, for example, in their future. We will also review the domestic and international legal frame about minors who are working, as well as the eventual proposals to eradicate it, since infants jobs, already well known as poverty producer, affecting not only these children personal destiny, but also affecting the destiny of this region and Mexico as a nation.
