Self-care workers have been exploited in the country, but now there’s hope that they can finally be treated like other workers who can be legally employed.
The International Labor Organization (ILO) released a report on Tuesday that showed that self-caring workers in Mexico are suffering from low pay and lack of access to health care.
The report highlighted that some of the most vulnerable workers in the sector include the elderly and disabled.
The ILO report also found that more than 90 percent of self-help workers in México are unpaid and lack access to proper social security, pension, and job protection.
However, it also highlighted that there are some workers who have made significant contributions to the country.
According to the report, about 1.7 million people are employed in the private sector.
But according to the International Labor Union (ILU), there are only 2.2 million private sector workers.
And while the ILO found that about one-third of these workers are women, it only found that women make up about one in five private sector employees.
“The ILO is very concerned about the fact that the workforce of self care workers is so low, the number of people who are in the workforce is very low and that this is an area that is being neglected,” the ILAU’s Ilan Karpinski said.
Karpinsky noted that the government is also responsible for ensuring that the people who work in the self-check-out business are paid a decent wage and a decent life.
The workers who are forced to work without a living wage have no rights to a decent pension, said Karpinksi.
The labor rights of workers like Karpinskis, who have been making their living from self-checks since the 1980s, are still in question in Mexico.
While the government has been paying the wages of self check-out workers, the government often fails to pay the benefits to the workers, Karpinka said.
“It is very difficult to find a worker in the whole country who has received a proper wage,” he said.
According a report by the United Nations, there are about 2.5 million people in the industry, but the government claims that only 2,500 workers are working in the labor force.
The ILAO reported that about 90 percent are undocumented.
Some workers have also been forced to flee their home countries.
Kipinski said that there is a large migrant population in Mexico, who often lack proper documentation.
The United Nations estimates that Mexico has around 500,000 undocumented immigrants.
“If we are going to provide these workers with proper care, we have to protect their human rights,” Karpinkis said.
He said that self care worker should be considered an “industry service worker” and not a “job-killer.”
“It’s very important that we have access to a quality of life and the right to dignity and a basic income,” Kipinksi said.
