The Secretary of Economic Development stated that it is unknown how many employees are still registered with the IMSS.
Mazatlán, Sinaloa (April 15, 2020).- The health emergency caused by Covid-19 has generated huge economic damages to the country, due to the measures that the federal government has implemented to contain the contagion.
In the case of Mazatlán, with the suspension of the cruise arrivals, closure of hotels and beaches, the negative effects are incalculable, since thousands of workers have been left without a job.
In this regard, the Secretary of Economic Development, Tourism and Municipal Fisheries, David González Torrentera, stated that so far there is no official figure of how many jobs have been lost so far in Mazatlan.
He stated that in the tourism sector alone, there are 18,000 jobs registered with the Mexican Social Security Institute, earning minimum wages, because most of their income comes from tips.
González Torrentera considered that in Mexico things are being done well, and all the preventive measures taken are necessary due to the severity of the outbreak, and he added that Mazatlan is ready for the economic reactivation worldwide.
The municipal official insisted that all the recommendations of the authorities of the three levels of government should be followed, so that all economic activities in Mazatlán can be reactivated as soon as possible.
