- Race to the Bottom, Second Leg: The Decline of the Maquiladora The loss of maquiladora jobs and investment is hitting hard in border states such as Baja California, home to a third of all of Mexico's maquiladora plants. The state has lost close to 63,000 maquiladora jobs in the past 16 months. Among the companies that have closed up shop are French battery producer Saft, golf club maker Aldila, and Korea's Kisho Electronics, a TV and computer circuit-board maker. The latest to flee is Canon Inc., which shut an ink-jet-printer factory in Tijuana in March, eliminating 700 jobs, and shifted production to Vietnam. "The maquiladora program has changed drastically. We don't get the same benefits anymore," says Mitsuharu Nakata, vice-president of the Japanese Maquiladora Assn. and a top executive at Panasonic.
