This December 1st at 7:00 a.m., the plenary of the Council of Representatives of the National Commission of Minimum Wages (hereinafter Conasami) was called to a session to define the minimum wage for 2023.
As a result of such session, it was established that there will be a 20% increase as of 2023, so that the general minimum wage will be $207.44 and in the Northern Border Free Zone it will be $312.41.
Such 20% increase will also apply to professional minimum wages. These are wages established specifically for certain professions that are in a vulnerable situation, such as the informal sector. Some examples of these professions are masonry, cash register cashier, bartender, etc. They make up a total list of 61 professions.
As was the case in 2021, in the next few days the Conasami Resolution will be published in the Official Gazette of the Federation decreeing the aforementioned increases. Therefore, in accordance with article 570 of the Federal Labor Law, the new salaries will be effective as of January 1, 2023.
In case you have any additional questions or need to request support for the implementation of the new salaries, please do not hesitate to contact Vega, Guerrero y Asociados. Our support is at your disposal.
