On January 27, 2016 a Constitutional Reform to deindex the Minimum Wage was published in the Official Gazette and became effective the following day. This reform is intended to allow the Minimum Wage to be enough to satisfy the ordinary needs of a family in the material, social and cultural scopes, and provide for a child’s mandatory education. Minimum Wage will be replaced for all other effects by a Unit of Measurement and Update (UMA, for its acronym in Spanish), the value of which has been set at MxCy $73.04 pesos by the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI). Within 120 calendar days, the Federal Congress must issue the secondary legislation that will rule UMA’s value. Furthermore, the Chamber of Deputies has created a Technical Committee in charge of ruling and directing the initial phase for all necessary legal amendments related to the Minimum Wage, which should be completed in a term of 1 year.
