I am currently doing an internship as an engineer for a global company and they recently decided to outsource the production line for one of their new products to Mexico. This is obviously done in an effort to save production costs and increase profitability. Anyway, the minimum wage in Mexico comes up to $1595 per annum whereas in Nigeria it is $1380 per annum so cost cannot be an excuse for not outsourcing to Nigeria. Manufacturing jobs are outsourced to places like Brazil, Mexico, India and China all the time. Why not Nigeria? It cannot be illiteracy because assemblying machines usually require little training and the workers are given a manual on how to assemble the machines anyway. I have asked my uncle this in the past and his response was "the problem is we Nigerians are too agressive". I just want to know your views and if you have any ideas on how we can bring some of these jobs to the country because it will really boost our economy in soo many ways.
