Mexico's socialist policy hurts workers at the minimum wage level-As a employer of say a domestic worker it is a trap-- The worker can sue you and play all kinds of havoc with your life--I was a partner in a restaurant and the business closed-- I was embargoed and jailed for a failed business--That's socialist Mexico--The next time I will hire nothing but illegals ; as they have no rights-and NO; I would not mistreat my workers--That's what happens when you let gov't in your life-!--!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This Government doesn't get it-- dumb in so many ways.   Best way to drive away the people most helpful to the economy, EXPATS !

Mexico has made being an expat difficult --A lot don't make it past 12 years--they just get worn out by the stupidity- we are just a walking wallet in their eyes--I have 15 years this latest trip in retirement--with 73 years, I'm too old to fight--HA- Tending my aches and pains takes most of my attention-- HA

Seriously?

130,000,000 citizens : 200,000 foreigners.

= Expats contribute =0.0000153846 percent. Not helpful at all.

I checked with Mr. Google and he said that as of 2018

"In Mexico, a country of almost 125 million people, it is estimated that just over one million foreigners live, of which most were born in the United States, according to the 2018 National Survey of Demographic Dynamics of the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI)."

The population today is more like 130,000,000 and the number of foreigners has also increased. So we are slightly less than 1% of the total population

After 14 years here that hasn't been our experience at all.  If we lived NOB we couldn't afford household help.  The only part of the country where climate approaches the quality here is Southern California and that isn't affordable either and has a whole host of other drawbacks.  It is far easier to get medical help for the normal problems of aging.  Food is of much better quality.  Mexicans in general are much more respectful and supportive of old folks.

When it comes to sheer stupidity it is hard to beat what is going on NOB these days.

MY biggest surprise was being from California--Bay Area-was that I was always broke and hitting the credit cards to make ends meet-- now I have more disposible cash than ever---my wallet is full of Pesos--HA
