Type of Manufacturers

Subcontractors
The subcontractor model in Mexico has increased since it was implemented, first in ´maquiladoras´ and later in multinational enterprises. The government has supported this model by establishing the Subcontractor Industry System. Cases where benefits are not paid to workers are common. Turnover is high, which leads to a general lack of productivity.
