What is the minimum wage?
We understand as minimum wage, as set out in Article 90 of the Federal Labour Act, as the minimum amount a worker must earn a workday, this wage as prescribed by law, must be sufficient to that the worker can meet all the basic needs of a family such as food, clothing, home and education.
Who sets? And how is it determined?
In Mexico there is a federal secretariat responsible for regulating the minimum wage and is known as the National Minimum Wage Commission, this must be based on the provisions of the Mexican Constitution, the conditions in the general economy is and analysis of the variations of the families of the country, this last point there is much disagreement.
Also the same Federal Labor Law mentions that must grant all appropriate security measures to protect the integrity of the workers, also the proportion of enrollment health services for himself and his family.

The Federal District is a case where it is and intends to bill creating the Measurement Unit and Upgrade (UMA), also called the Measurement Unit of the City of Mexico (UCDMX) for this de-index the wage laws Federal and replace the minimum wage and adapt their own economic status District since this clearly surpasses the other parts of the rest of the country and thereby reverse the decline in the purchasing power of the population and this process will move from salary now pays $ 70.10 to $ 82.85 pesos per day.
Citizen Submissions demanding raise the minimum wage by 5%, this was not granted because it declares that this 4.2% is for inflation, but analysts said it would be better for the economy and the purchasing power of employees raising the minimum above inflation to ensure the needs of a householder. In addition to the unification of geographical areas A and B in the 2015, this was not a fact but economic growth (statistically) is likely to unification of the two zones A and B is performed by 2016. After the unification of the three areas that took place in 2012 that helped to grow the above areas C similarly that as they have the above areas B, which is encouraging for the whole country.
