Unemployment in Mexico is below the national average.
According to a report from the Assistant City Manager Russell Runge Mexico has an unemployment rate of 2.2 percent and the average salary is just over 36 thousand dollars.
Runge gave his report during a City Council Work Session at City Hall last (Monday) night.
Runge also says several new businesses and restaurants made their way into Mexico, including Boston Proper, 2 pet groomers, and the new Soft Surroundings building with several restaurants.
A few more projects that are almost complete are Jodie’s Laundromat and a Dollar Tree close to Aldi’s.
