Two-way trade: Attorney represents clients in Mexico, U.S.
By Sheila Pursglove
Six million U.S. jobs depend on trade with Mexico – including 175,000 Michigan jobs.
“One in every 24 American workers depend on trade with Mexico to maintain their employment,” explains Raul Rangel, a corporate attorney with Butzel Long. “Mexican companies are now industry leaders in at least four areas of the U.S. market – cement, breads and baked goods, tortillas, and milk and dairy products. Consumers may be surprised to learn that brands they are familiar with, like Entenmanns, Sara Lee, Thomas English Muffins, Boboli Pizza Crust, Borden Milk, Weight Watchers Yogurt, Mission Tortillas, Ready-Mix Cement, Tracfone cell phones, and even The New York Times, are supported by Mexican investment—as are the U.S. jobs those companies provide.”
