The labour logic in the model of export intensive in non-qualified labour. The case of Mexico

Employment problems in Mexico are reflected in bad quality of many
occupations. A key element of the strategy pursued to face them consisted
of promoting manufacturing-based export-led growth. After twenty years
of following this orientation, employment issues haven’t been solved. This
paper argues that Mexico’s participation in world trade, specifically its role in
international production sharing system, results in low economic growth, which
ceases employment dynamics and the generation of low-quality jobs in the
exporting sector, characteristic that spreads towards the rest of the economy.
