Reform of Federal Labor Law good for Mazatlan hoteliers


The leader of the chamber in Mazatlán, Miguel Hernández Fonseca, described it as a transcendental step for the economy in the country due to the increase in productivity.

MAZATLAN. – With good eyes, the Federation of National Chambers of Commerce, Services and Tourism of the State of Sinaloa sees the approval of the reform of the Federal Labor Law, after articles 76 and 78 of said law were reformed, where the idea is an increase from 6 to 12 vacation days for workers from their first year of seniority. 

Miguel Hernández Fonseca, leader of FECANACO, described as an important and transcendental step for the economy, since the world average in Mexico is among the lowest levels in terms of labor profitability, therefore, the labor reform will pay off. 

“We consider that it is a transcendental step for the Mexican economy, and specifically in the state of Sinaloa, in the chamber that I represent, without a doubt we see them well as a productivity issue,” said Hernández Fonseca.  

He commented that Switzerland and Brazil are above Mexico in terms of Gross Domestic Product and much of that has to do with days off.

“They approved this type of working conditions some time ago, fewer hours and more vacation days,” he said.

He indicated that, however, they are also well aware of some impediments, especially for micro and small merchants who have very few collaborators and due to the reform, they will have to hire more people who can do the work of those who are on vacation. .

He also argued that this will generate more expenses for many people, so they estimate that the Federal Government will provide more incentives to workers, such as the Vacation Bonus.
