Media outlets ran an Associated Press story Friday that outlined just how terrible President-elect Donald Trump will be … for Mexican jobs.
Mexican reporter Christopher Sherman wrote the story for The AP, and high-profile outlets like The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Miami Herald, the Chicago Tribune, and Business Insider all ran the story, alongside countless smaller news organizations nationwide.
The piece shares stories of Mexicans upset with decisions by Ford and Carrier, which recently announced investments in U.S.-based plants in lieu of planned investments in Mexico. Ford announced it would cancel a $1.6 billion car plant investment in the northern part of Mexico.
The proposed plant would have hired 2,800 Mexicans, and the resulting economic boost would have added 10,000 jobs to the region, according to the report.
Did the Mexicans get upset when Americans lost all their jobs to NFTA
Just think of all those poor maligned Mexicans that wont get to rape and murder American girls with impunity beginning soon!
Well this just breaks my heart! NOT!!!!! Now they know what it feels like to lose jobs/income. Fix your corrupt government and imprison or KILL all the drug lords and their organizations. I for one don't give a damn!
it does not phase me at all...the people of mexico need to make effort to fix their country and stop sucking the life out of this country.
Awwwww !!!!! My heart just fills with misty feelings of sorrow, that Mexico's work force is going to feel the "CRUNCH" instead of Americans !!!!!!!!
One of the main purposes of a Government, is to see that the PEOPLE (Citizens) of that Country are protected in things like Employment, Education, Commerce, etc. If the Government of MEXICO is so damned CORRUPT that the Politicians line their pockets with the money that is to be used for THE PEOPLE, then ( like the USA), the PEOPLE should Vote OUT those politicians and start anew. TOUGH SHIT that TRUMP is watching out for AMERICANS !!!!! It's about time we ended the NAFTA Bull shit and thought about ourselves before anyone else !!!! MEXICO has been BLEEDING us dry for DECADES, so has the rest of the World. Time is NOW for TRUMP to switch gears and MAKES AMERICA GREAT AGAIN !!!!! Mexico can get SOUTH AMERICA to build some manufacturing jobs in their Country, but MEXICO has built WALLS TOO HIGH ON THEIR SOUTHERN BORDERS to allow anyone to cross into their Country !!!!
What about the jobs they stole from Americans?
Just as the size of the illegal alien population can only be estimated, the number of illegal aliens working in the United States is also subject to estimation. A large share of the illegal alien population is generally accepted as being in the workforce because that is what motivates most illegal immigration. However, there are some family members, especially children of illegal aliens not in the labor force, while others may be in prison. One recent estimate by researchers at the Pew Hispanic Center puts the number of illegal aliens in the workforce at 8 million out of an overall population of 11.2 million illegal aliens, i.e., 71.4 percent.1 That estimate is generally accepted as reasonable.
FAIR's estimate of the illegal alien population in 2010 is slightly higher than that of the Pew estimate, i.e., 11.9 million. FAIR's estimate of the number of illegal aliens in the workforce — using the share estimate of the Pew study — is similarly slightly higher, i.e., about 8.5 million jobs encumbered by illegal alien workers.
