Mexico to raise its $4.70 a day

Thursday, November 23, 2017

Mexican government and business leaders agreed on Tuesday to raise the country's minimum wage starting on December 1 to $4.70 from $4.25 a day. The 10 percent raise is good news for 24.7 million Mexicans who work either one or two minimum wage jobs.

But it also resurfaces a key complaint by American workers who voted for President Trump, in part because of his pledge to renegotiate Nafta. Trump blames Nafta for the loss of many American jobs.
