Did Mattel lie to the House Ways and Means Committee

In 1993 Mattel Vice-President Fermin Cuza testified before the House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Trade that NAFTA would create jobs and have "a very positive effect on more than 2,000 [Mattel] U.S. employees."  [Nasty Nafta]

Glen Bozarth, Mattel's spokesperson, supports the firing of a worker who possessed materials on workers rights. He claimed that she was properly fired for distributing those "subversive" materials. This was after Delfina Rodríguez, reportedly, was interrogated until the next morning for hours without access to bathroom, or calls to family.
