Marina del Pilar administration, leader of job creation in Baja California

Baja California has the highest job creation rate among all states bordering the US

The Baja Californian government led by Marina del Pilar Ávila Olmeda still has a rising workforce that keeps promoting the state’s development and the wellbeing of all families that live in it, the governor stated. She also highlighted that a statewide record number of formal jobs was reached: 1,013,000 people were registered at the Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS). This figure is a historical number for Baja California.

Marina del Pilar pointed out that in Baja California 38,500 new job sources have been created in the year so far which is why, besides the great figures reflected by IMSS statistics, the state leads nationwide regarding several economic matters, but especially when it comes to its workforce.

She also highlighted that according to the most recent records, more than 170,500 workers are earning four times the minimum wage. She also stated that of all new jobs created, 46% of them occurred in Tijuana and 33% in Ensenada.

According to numbers by the Secretariat of Economy and Innovation (SEI) of Baja California, job creation in Baja California is the highest among northern border Mexican states, reaching 97.8%. With that, a sustained increase regarding job creation is reflected among several industries especially manufacturing, commerce, and services.

Ávila Olmeda acknowledged and thanked Baja Californian workers for carrying out their work with all of their effort in all the economic activities that exist in the state, as well as employers and businesses that continue investing in Baja California, for considering it a proper place to invest. This is due to its noticeable logistical and geographical advantages as well as the constant development of its qualified workforce.

The SEI, led by Kurt Honold Morales, pointed out that Baja California continues to position itself among the four states with the most formal jobs created, and an example of this is the manufacturing industry that constitutes 13.3% of work spaces created nationwide in this industry, positioning itself as the second place in our country.

Regarding the industrial landscape, in the first four months of 2022, 19,700 jobs were created and was second place nationwide. These job creation numbers are higher than the ones obtained in the same four months of the last few years: in 2019, there were 4,158; in 2020, there was a loss of more than 8,000 jobs, and in 2021, the number was 18,666. Because of this, the agency has pointed out that the growth is exponential.

Lastly, Marina del Pilar emphasized that everything previously mentioned reflects that exports keep increasing and that jobs, just in the first four months of 2022, reached an amount of $5,904 million dollars, which is an increase of 19.7% when compared to the yearly trend. For the governor, these results are due to the daily efforts of more than one million workers who work daily to take care of their families in order to build a present and a future for Baja California.
