At the beginning of the twenty-first century, the capital offensive on labor is being increasingly extended, driven by the insatiable need for accumulation/reproduction in Latin America. In Brazil, among the various forms of embodiment of this societal model, we highlight the sugarcane agro-hydro-business, which, under the prerogative of the fallacious discourse of national, sustainable development, etc., omitted several grievances regarding labor noncompliance, workers' health, sustainability, trade union, environmental, among others. As is the case in the Administrative Region of Presidente Prudente (São Paulo, Brazil), which has occupied us in our studies in the country, with emphasis on the migration of workers from different parts of the Brazilian Northeast, for the manual cutting of sugarcane -of sugar. From this perspective, we try to understand the reality of temporary migrant workers in Mexico, specifically in the states of Oaxaca and Chiapas, seeking to analyze their work and life trajectory. To that end, we propose to understand the meanings and meanings that make up the migratory labor process for agroindustrial capital in Mexico, seeking to establish approximations with the reality presented in the Administrative Region of Presidente Prudente (São Paulo, Brazil).
