Mexico, U.S. Sign Agreement Aimed At Educating Migrant Workers About Labor Rights

“The labor secretaries for Mexico and the United States signed a joint declaration Thursday aimed at better informing Mexican workers about their protections under U.S. laws. The agreement arose from longstanding concerns Mexican officials had about its citizens who work in the United States, on employment visas, in the areas of agriculture, forestry, food packing, fairs and carnivals. The agreement calls for conducting educational and outreach efforts targeting the workers about their rights as well as the responsibilities of employers.”
