Mexico has been on my mind for a couple of years, ever since I met a Canadian entrepreneur who runs a tomato production company in Canada.

He said in passing that his seasonal workers from Mexico out-pick his Canadian workers by a ratio of three to one. "You must pay by the tomato," I guessed, imagining only a financial incentive could create such zeal.

"No," he said, "they all make the same. Some workers are just working harder. They seem to want to."
