In a previous article I pointed out that a high percentage of Mexican emigrants to the U.S. previously had jobs in Mexico. Well, according to a recent survey conducted by the Banco de Mexico, 6 of 10 Mexican emigrants had jobs in Mexico before emigrating to the U.S. [Seis de cada 10 migrantes dejan trabajo en M?©xico Jose Manuel Arteaga, Feb. 13th, 2007, Universal]

The Banco also revealed that 3/4 of Mexican emigrants surveyed had lower than a high school education, and only 5.6% had any college.

The most lucrative jobs for Mexicans in the U.S., according to the survey, are found working in construction, as chauffeurs or auto mechanics .
