As a Mexican small-business owner explain why you would want General motors to build an assembly plant in your village?

When an assembly plant is built near any village, it brings:

  • Many jobs, from humble clerks to blue-collar worker positions to management jobs within the plant.
  • Needs from the workers of the plant, namely goods and services that can increase your local economy (ie: stores, hotels, movie theaters).
  • One assembly plant could chose to purchase screws, windshields or any small parts from local manufacturers instead of importing them from the home country. This in turn allows many small businesses and factories to spawn around the main assembly plant. This is called economy of scale.
