Increasing the minimum wage by 15 pesos will not resolve the hardships in Mexico
Mexico City, October 30, 2017 - The Salary Observer in Mexico said that the minimum wage is so low in our country, that even an increase of 80 to 95 pesos (as proposed by the business sector), will still be insufficient to resolve the problem of income poverty for Mexicans.

The minimum salary has been increasing between 3 and 4 pesos per year for 25 years, shows the offical statistics fromt he National Minimum Salary Commission.

In that regard, the Observatory says the salary levels in Mexico are so low, that even if with the proposed increase form the private initiative, it would mean a monthly salary of 2,800 pesos (US$146), while the minimum income for workers should be 16,500 pesos (US$862), or seven times greater.

Mexico continues to be one of the countries with the lowest salaries in the world and Latin American, included Guatemala, and is only a little higher than Haiti.
