The unemployment rate in Mexico was last reported at 4.94 percent in December of 2010. From 2000 until 2010, Mexico's Unemployment Rate averaged 3.45 percent reaching an historical high of 5.93 percent in May of 2009 and a record low of 2.22 percent in November of 2002. The labor force is defined as the number of people employed plus the number unemployed but seeking work. The non labor force includes those who are not looking for work, those who are institutionalized and those serving in the military.

Looks like there’s jobs over there for some undocumented workers to return to
If this is true, why the hell are they all coming here looking for jobs?
And a rapidly falling birthrate as well. Average Mexican women now has 1.8 kids, compared to over 6 in the 1960s.
That's what I want to know.
Running water, rent subsidy, food stamps, cell phones, tax exemption, evading parental responsibility, 4,876 cable channels...why not?
Thats cuz they are all here!
Mexico must be near empty by now......
Surely you jest, its not jobs they come here for,, its free money!!!!!! Free Medical, Free EBT cards, Free schools, Free lunch, subsidized housing. If you heard of such a place, wouldn't you be heading that way?
Did they get uglier ?
They are all in Montgomery County MD. now.
That is the right answer.
You mean compared to 6 when they are in the United States. Gotta get all the welfare bennies they can.
Well, the average Mexican has gotten fatter since then...
Stop. You can't be serious. What is the birth rate for Mexican women in the US?
well they say that Columbia is about to boom,that would be great! then the illegals from South America will flock there and wont be able to vote for Obama!
I’ve seen Irish folks online complaining about Africans and even Poles. Maybe about time Los frijoleros join Carlos Salinas in the Auld Sod. In 30 years, they’ll be intermarried and producing MexiPaddies like crazy, and will keep the Africans out.
They have that number because all of their damn unemployed people are in our country. Dang!!!!
The truth is that birthrates are falling all over the world, with mostly only the Africans these days having high birthrates, a fact mitigated by the high rate of infant mortality in subsaharan Africa.
100 years from now, the third and fourth generation Mexican Americans will be protesting the Africans who will be pouring into the US.
Over 10% of the Mexican population lives in the US, more than 10 million people.
If 10% of the US population lived outside the US, we would have full employment also, especially if they were the poorest of the poor dumped on another country’s welfare state.
Not only does Mexico have full employment, it has the 11th largest economy (PPP) in the world.
Very few Latinos in this country have more than two!! Threw a wrench in the great forecasting of population growth.
Maybe it is just particular to where I live then but they all have at least 3 and usually more.
ya, cuz they’re all here taking our jobs and also, selling pot and other illegal drugs doesn’t qualify for a w-2 form.
And the wierdo we just elected governor in CA wants to raise taxes.
First, I don't believe the number - it reminds me of Cuba's 100% literacy rate. That being said, whatever their employment number is or isn't, what is unquestionable is that a Mexican job pays only a fraction of what a US minimum wage job pays. They're coming here because it's economically advantageous.
No, they count Mex illegals working in the US, therefore their figures look better than ours. Only thing is, as our unemployment gets worse, fewer US citizens can afford to stay at hotels, motels and flop houses, so their unemployment numbers about to go up.
Fifty years ago the Mexicans in Los Angeles county were “breeding” for the revolution when they expected to recover ownership of the southwest USA.
.........”The non labor force includes those who are not looking for work”.............
67% of the population.......
.........The non labor force includes those who are not looking for work.............
67% of the population
Congratulations ...At least you read the report. It’s a completely inflated figure, which includes their army navy and jailed inmates. It’s valueless, like Obama stats ...sounds like satire...except its not April 1st.
Irish kinship with Mexicans dates back to the San Patricios, when Irishmen left the US Army during the invasion of Mexico to help a Catholic people against a Protestant aggressor (their flag was a Mexican flag with a harp in the center instead of the eagle - they were hung or branded when captured). I have a problem with illegal aliens, not Mexicans. Many of them in the southwest had families living here before the Mayflower landed; us (relative) newcomers can’t complain about them...(even though we still do).
