Excoriate evil greedy capitalism as much a you like, struggling to start and run a small business is the entry to the middle class for many Mexicans. It’s a way of life handed down from generation to generation. These business owners are no where near as affluent as most of the US middle class, but they do own somewhat nicer houses, cars, maybe a maid to come in from 1 to 3 days a week. These people exploit the poor? They make jobs that would not have existed otherwise.
