MONTERREY, Mexico -- Monterrey, Mexico and Indianapolis have a lot in common.
Both are landlocked, both are a capital city, both employ Carrier employees, until the company moves those jobs south.
The company is not hiding the fact that it can pay Mexican workers $6 an hour with benefits, about four times less than Hoosiers.
Monterrey and its suburbs, with a population of about 5 million people, are out to attract other American companies.
The region promotes dozens of its universities, saying that they graduate people at a record rate.
The region also sells that it has had very little labor issues. There are labor unions, but some suggest that they are heavily influenced by companies or the government. It is rare to find privately organized unions, and it has been years since any union has been on strike.
