Friday, May 15, 2015

Mexican farmworkers fighting low wages and poor working conditions in the border state of Baja California have reached an agreement with the government and their employer.

The Mexican interior ministry says daily wages will go from 100 to 200 pesos ($13 a day). Workers will be added to the social security system and will be allowed to unionize.
