Different metabolisms and genetics. I know from studying my own family, that anything I put on past age 40 or so tends to remain on the bones. So I am relatively careful of the quantities in which I indulge.

After I read Burky's suggestion for "equal pay standards" for our friends south of the boarder, I went >----->
Perhaps that WOULD work!
But what is the exchange rate and the difference in the cost of living betwixt here and Meh-Hee-Ko?
I'm thinking they can live at about the same standard there as say a middle, middle class citizen of the USA, while making what's considered the "standard" now? (comparative). To be paid the same as we are in this country, they'd wind up living BETTER than we do on the same wages.
However, I still think Burky's idea is do-able.
And I'm almost there now.
All I'd have to do is move about 125 miles south of my home 20 and I'd be in Meh-Hee-Ko, living for far less, and making as much as my American counterparts.
Could even wind up being the "American Dream", ya reckon?
Although our southern friends won't allow American citizens to own land in Meh-Hee-Ko, it could be leased --- and a stylish villa could be erected with all the comforts necessary for a northern trucker to be satisfied.
Maybe pampered. And probably be able to hire a staff to care for the villa and clean the swimming pool while we're truckin' up north, --- familiar territory. I figure we'd have the edge in that department for a few years, at least.
From the cabannas located around our swimming pool, we could watch the revolving door go 'round & 'round, as our southern neighbors cram through to a "better life" in the north, --- while we enjoy another one of those blue adult beverages. You know, the ones with the paper parasol. Little, paper parasol.
But I don't know why. :smt017:smt102
What do they taste like anyway?
from your facts sounds like these drivers are gunna be run to death hurry up and hurry bac.
all for 72 dollars a day wonder if theyll actually c that if not then will these large corporations who r coowners in these firms pay the price?
for non compliance with mexican min wage standards
Are the numbers in the wage table converted to US dollars?
This is copied from the table:
The wages would seem more realistic if Pesos is the case. $72.59 per day plus mileage is more than some US drivers make. I see ads here all the time for semi and straight truck drivers that pay $8 - $9 dollars per hour.
If I read the report right, and the 72.59 is in Pesos, that should calculate to around $6.75 - $7.00 per day, a more realistic figure, as this is the minimum pay. Also, 13 CPM at 600 miles per day is $78.00. I would venture a guess that 13 CPM is a special high wage paid just for this paticular US run. I could be wrong though, as I can't find any resources to prove what Mexican companies pay their drivers.
If people are making $60 to $80 US dollars a day in Mexico, then why are they crosssing the border in droves to work at McDonalds for minimum wage?
