On September 24, 2015, the National Minimum Wage Commission resolved that a single minimum wage of $70.10 pesos a day would apply across the entire country of Mexico. This resolution became effective as of October 1, 2015. Previously, for the purposes of minimum wage, Mexico was divided into two geographic areas – A and B. The September resolution brought the minimum wage for geographic area B, previously set at $68.28 pesos a day, up to $70.10 pesos a day, in line with the minimum wage set for geographic area A.
On January 1, 2016, the national minimum wage will increase by 4.2% to $73.04 pesos a day.
