Alleviating Ennui

According to a new survey, one-tenth of the Mexican labor market suffers from extreme boredom.

This is further evidence of a static, hidebound labor market. If all these people are bored, and Mexican entrepreneurs are always looking for new talent in the drug trafficking industry where presumably no one suffers from boredom, extreme or otherwise, well, the obstacles to the free movement of labor need to be identified and removed promptly. There is no reason today's bored office rat shouldn't be tomorrow's agent-bribing, pistol-toting, border-jumping mule-runner.
