Payment per hour and hiring flexibility are the areas of greatest interest for maquiladora companies in the Labor Reform bill being discussed at the Senate.

“These amendments to the Labor Act related to flexible hiring and work-per-hour will provide a benefit to the sector”, Luis Aguirre, Chairman, Mexican Council of Maquiladora and Export Manufacturing Industry, assured.

Aguirre explained that due to this industry’s characteristics —such as low specialization— payment per hour will give access to a larger number of people, especially young people, students, who will be able to formally join the labor market in the free time their studies allow”, he said.

He further said that these measure will provide with juridical certainty some operations which were already common among companies, unions and labor authorities.
