Abstract

With the establishment of the North American Free Trade Agreement (TLCAN) the northern region manufacturing sector of Mexico exhibited a fast growth during the nineties. This paper seeks to estimate the effects of schooling, labor experience and specialization on labor maquiladora income in the cities of Tijuana and Ciudad Juarez. A weighted LS model was established, using labor earning as the dependent variable, and experience schooling and specialization as the explanatory variables. The results showed that in the northern cities both schooling and experience resulted in higher labor income, particularly in intensive capital and technological industries. The coefficient of specialization was higher in Tijuana and Ciudad Juarez than in the rest of the cities included.
