Mexico can and should invite American Workers to move to Mexico

Sure, the wages are lower, but so are the costs.

And if they can retain their US citizenships, which they can, that would be a Yuuge fuck you to the Trumpster.

Win-win all around.

2. Why not?

Where's the loss?

Experienced American workers moving to Mexico, more jobs, more revenue, more experience.

Where's the loss?

4. Do you have any idea how far $6/hr goes in Mexico?

You can live on that wage. Not only live, but prosper.

9. I've been traveling into Mexico more frequently of late

After living in the US for 40+ years as a US citizen born abroad. I've had a chance to meet with many members of the US ex-pat community in Mexico, particularly in San Miguel de Allende where I'm considering retirement.

They love the place.
They love the people.
They love the atmosphere.

Most of all, they love being loved, and feeling welcomed.

12. Are these ex-pats working as wage earners making $6/hr?

 

Are they displacing local, native-born laborers?

13. I sense your hostility, but I'll answer your question directly

No, they are not earning $6/hr, they are retired.

They are in Mexico because they can stretch their retirement dollars further there, and live in relative comfort and can even afford servants.

For $6/hr in Mexico, you can live a middle class life, reserved for the upper classes in the US.

It is ridiculous to gauge success, and happiness by a single number with no context whatsoever.

14. Mexico needs skilled workers

I grew up in Mexico, surrounded by families whose last names were:

McDonald (Scotts)
Spiegel (German)
Vidaurri (Italian)
Vincent (American)

I could go on.

Mexico recognizes and values talent, knowledge, and education.

Something sadly lacking in the United States these days.
