This work study the income of the Tijuana and Mexicali industrial manufacturing worker as a function of the schooling level and work experience through a human capital econometric model. Information from the National Survey of Urban Employment (ENEU), was used in a representative data base with a sample of 184 observations for Tijuana between 1994 and 2001 (8 years and 23 industrial branches) and 112 observations for Mexicali between 1998 and 2001 (4 years and 28 industrial branches). Schooling was most important than work experience in the income determination of the Tijuana and Mexicali industrial workers. This means that in the local labor market, the educational level is a key factor in the wage negotiation.

Keywords : education; schooling; experience; income; manufacturing.
