The labor force in Mexico has been continuously growing over the past ten years as the country’s population has grown and more job seekers have been able to find employment thanks to an increase in foreign direct investment.
With a low median age, Mexico’s population has been growing consistently since 1995, at little over 1%. In Mexico, the average age is 29. Given the workforce stability observed in Mexico, the average age of the workforce in the United States, China, early to mid-40s in Germany, Italy, and the United Kingdom, respectively, is 38.
Manufacturers continue to be interested in Mexico in large part due to this consistent growing trend in population. This has not been the case, unlike other nations where it may be difficult to find skilled workers for manufacturing positions. In fact, employees in Mexico have received greater training for more complicated occupations as more businesses have established industrial supply chains there.
