Give Workers in Mexico a Living Wage

Target: Alfonso Navarrete Prida, Secretary of Labor, Mexico

Goal: Give workers in Mexico a living wage that will allow them to support themselves and their families.

Workers in Mexico are struggling to provide for themselves and their families on an average of only 52 cents an hour. It is impossible for Mexican families to pay for shelter, food, and transportation on the equivalent of only $4.20 per day.

Workers in Mexico deserve a living wage. No longer should they be exploited by other nations, especially America, for cheap labor. Mexico has attracted unfair labor agreements for far too long off the backs of their hardworking citizens.

Research indicates that a raise to $5 per day will help sustain food, shelter, and transportation. However, this meager raise will only support the bare minimum. Workers in Mexico deserve a raise much higher than $5. They deserve a raise they can live on. Sign the petition and demand that the Mexican government increase the minimum wage.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Secretary Prida,

Workers in your country struggle to survive on only 52 cents an hour, the average amount workers are bringing home. How can they be expected to provide food, shelter, and transportation for their families on such a meager amount?

For too long, the hardworking men, women, and children in your nation have been exploited for cheap labor. This human rights abuse should end immediately. Workers in Mexico deserve a wage they can live and thrive on. I demand you raise the minimum wage in Mexico to above $5 per hour.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
