Mexicans want their jobs back

Sacked workers take to the capital’s streets in protest against layoffs.

Thousands of sacked workers have taken to the streets of Mexico City to demand their jobs back.

More than 40,000 employees were fired in October when the government closed a regional electricity firm.

Some critics claim it was an attempt by Felipe Calderon, the Mexican president, to limit the workers unions. But he says the company was inefficient.
