The Los Angeles Times has a very interesting story on a new Toyota automobile plant in Tijuana, Mexico that will produce the Tacoma pick-up truck. After reading some comments about the money UAW workers make compared to the roughly $5 an hour their Mexican counterparts make it is a shock anyone would choose to build in the U.S. That fact is also a noticeable omission in the story. It is a terrific picture window into what's happening in a burgeoning Mexico economy but says nothing on how it affects U.S. manufacturing.
