Why is Mexico importing more workers than it's exporting? Is it taking over from China as a cheap labour market, satisfying demand from US consumers?

We hear from workers who've come home and from employers creating thousands of new jobs. We also look at how much of a threat continuing violence is to the country's economy.

Plus, we talk to a businessman who has to pay protection money to drugs gangs every month and we have an interview with Mexico's economics minister, Ildefonso Guajardo.
