Most interestingly, it is the working class union centrals who press 
for a Mercosur, rather than bosses's centrals.  Since one of the 
starting concepts in the Asunción agreements is that any modification 
in labor markets associated to Mercosur should respect and generalize 
the gains of workers at both sides of the border, then it is no 
surprise that the Arg, Bra, etc. bourgeoisies have been stopping 
labor integration of Mercosur.  Whatever modification should arise it 
would generalize the _best_, not the _worst_, labor law.

It is exactly the opposite of what takes place in Europe, save for 
the recent struggle over integration of "Eastern" pools of cheap 
labor, which were the kernel of a bitter struggle between Eng, 
French, etc., workers and their own bourgeoisies (who are very eager 
to dump wages through fast and massive integration of the peculiarly 
legislated "new members")
