    Where are the jobs?

    The jobs are being created in agriculture. NAFTA made it possible for the US to export lots of corn and other ag products to Mexico. That wiped out a lot of peasant jobs in Mexico. So the guys that were making a meager living in Mexico on small plots have to look for work. They come to the US and get jobs in our ag sector. Check out, for example, who is working the smelly, nasty jobs on the mega-hog farms and in the meat packing plants. Thanks, NAFTA.
