Mexican workers celebrate their Day

Thursday, May 2, 2019

May 1 is International Workers’ Day, and employees in Mexico have good reason to celebrate: They just won the right to organize and negotiate their own pay.

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador enacted a labor reform bill Wednesday that for the first time ever gives workers the legal right to bargain collectively with employers through independent labor unions, without fear of retaliation, Vox reports.
