Cotton textile workers lived in textile communities, mill towns, factory housing, and working-class neighborhoods that facilitated an easy communication among them. This chapter describes the layered communities of Mexican cotton textile workers. It organizes these communities into three broad areas: social class, social relationships, and social ideals. Each interlocked with the others to form a world view that allowed industrial workers to jump at revolution when the possibility presented itself. Primary, of course, was their concept of social class, without which there would not have been a workers' revolution.
