How can we make mexico better if its our government and police that are corrupt. What should we do? Protest? We cant even defend ourselves. Guns are illegal unless you have money, are cartel, or police. There cant be a revolution if there's no weapons it would be a slaughter.
Minimum wage in mexico is 10 pesos an hour in jobs that require you to work 10hrs a day, 6 days a week
Technically it's officially 70 pesos / work day, though typically only school kids have these jobs (like middle schoolers, even elementary schoolers) since it's simply not enough to sustain yourself
The reason they get away with that is because 2 or even 3 families living together can afford a place so that their children can access the internet and actually get through school. Which is a necessity, because even jobs as a janitor are requiring a high school level diploma to even apply. OR years of experience whilst simultaneously being under 40.
A "well paying job" in mexico, like a call center job (as shitty as they are), are roughly 4 times minimum wage. (39 pesos) Despite a work week there being on average 48 hrs, people usually work 2hrs of overtime a day (12 a week) just to make ends meet. Same job in the US can easily pay $15/hr and only need 2 people to afford a small apartment.
Mexican economy is based around the dollar, as much as they hate it. Why? because the dollar has gone up from about 13 pesos in 2009ish to an average of 20 pesos in less than 5 years, meaning the price of everything increased at a similar pace. Can you guess what didn't increase? That's right, wages. They went from being 3-5 times worse to being 5-7 times worse.
Most recently, the government pulled a stunt dubbed "El Gasolinazo" which increased gas prices by 20% overnight. People are too busy protesting that shitty move to even care about the near future that Trump is setting in motion by renegotiating NAFTA, because at this rate, the Mexican government is gonna crash mexico before it even reaches that point.
Pay for the wall? Shit, I know plenty of people who would gladly build it for you if it means having a steady job.
That's without mentioning the blatantly corrupt officials who rig elections to make sure their friends make it into office, perpetuating the phrase "fat cats get fatter." Or the lack of security in everyday life. The nice parts of mexico aren't as bad as the worst parts of the US, sure. But the fact that they are somewhat comparable is appalling.
I finished high school in Mexico and had to walk home because people had started throwing molotov cocktails at public transit buses. Why? Because the public transit system is shit and the government had refused to address it until that point. PTS kept increasing the price, without gov. authorization, meanwhile the number of deaths due to accidents involving PT buses skyrocketed (without repercussions). People would steal buses, slap a route number on it and drive the route posing as official PTS drivers, which no one like due to the fact they they were not liable for shit, but because it meant getting around faster, put up with.
You can hear people talk about how they got lucky while traveling to the next state over, because some cartel literally took over the toll booths along the way, giving everyone free passage, after it turned out some official or another was pocketing the money instead of using it to maintain the stretch of highway.
I personally celebrate the fact that Trump if stopping jobs from being sent over here. That only benefits the companies sending the jobs, since it promotes the use of US products here, fucking over all of the small private businesses that could help dig Mexico out of it's current shit hole.
I imagine you might be interested in discussing these points. I'm no economist, but It seems like you wanted people respond to you
