Mexico's USMCA Labor Promises

Mexico's USMCA Labor Promises

Posted: Updated:

A top Mexican official promises the country intends to fully implement their landmark labor reform law under the U.S.-Mexico-Canada-Agreement. Government leaders hope it will ease House Democrats' concern they're not allocating enough money in their budget to do so.

Mexican Undersecretary for North America, Jesus Seade, tells Politico that Mexico isn't cutting the labor enforcement budget, but will propose a 33-percent cut to its labor department. But he tells Politico it's impossible to expect Mexico will have fully implemented the promised changes before the USMCA is ratified. That was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's main concern during recent talks.

U.S Representative Richard Neal will lead a congressional delegation to Mexico this week to discuss the USMCA and these issues with government officials.
