The case went viral on social networks, where many people who live in Mexico have been interested in the position. A taquero's hours at this San Diego restaurant are 50 hours a week with a payout of $ 20 each.

Although it is an attractive salary and benefits, the restaurant has not had any easy finding candidates, as no one has shown interest in the position. This means that some establishments close some days of the week, while others have not been able to resume activities.

According to Nora González, the manager of the taqueria, in addition to the fact that this workforce is not very common in California, the health crisis caused by COVID-19 exacerbated the hiring problem, as many people have become ill.

Although to work as a taquero you need to know how to handle knives and a lot of patience, the taqueria offers training and the manager, Jackeline Ponce, explains that this is also paid.
