Unemployment in Mexico continues to grow; in January of this year, 2008, was calculated on a cup of the 4.06%, which means that around 1 786, 628 people age and conditions to work is they were vacant. Such levels of unemployment are reflected in the varied fields of the Mexican economy.
Unemployment, therefore, generates an increase in poverty rates, and in their desperation are driven to migrate abroad.
