Full time Job

If anyone’s looking for a full-time job in Jalapa:

Solicitation: // Youths 16-21 years old to // cut material in // a workshop located in the city center and // 4 young guys to deliver it. // Offering $600 pesos (~$50 USD) weekly.  Work // is full-time.

Solicitation: // Youths 16-21 years old to // cut material in // a workshop located in the city center and // 4 young guys to deliver it. // Offering $600 pesos (~$50 USD) weekly. Work // is full-time.

One one hand, seeing this job posting for $50/week reminded me how little many jobs in Mexico can pay, especially if they are unskilled.  In its defense, the cost of living outside of Mexico City, even in cities with modern infrastructure such as Jalapa, are quite low.  On the other hand, Mexico has more millionaires than Germany… there’s wealth here, it’s just highly concentrated.  But I’ll leave the commentary on how that hurts development to the economists.
