TIJUANA – More than 1,000 Central American migrants are working in the industrial sector of Tijuana, said the president of the Industrial Association of the Mesa de Otay (AIMO), Salvador Díaz González.
According to the leader of the maquiladora industry, since before the migrant caravan arrived at this border, people of Central American origin had approached companies to look for a job opportunity.
“They are in the production area; they already had skills as seamstresses so they are working in the same area of the industry. There are people who have arrived before the caravan, and in recent months there have been more people to hire,” added the president of AIMO.
Díaz González said that Central Americans have been hired through job fairs, modules installed in the Otay area, or through outsourcing.
