Mexico's Commitment to Eradicating Child Labor

Staff - Presidency of the Republic

A new report to mark World Day Against Child Labour by the International Labour Organisation (ILO) paints a grim picture of children working in the shadows and calls for 'concerted and joint action at national and international levels to eliminate child in domestic labour.' (AlJazeeraEnglish)

As part of last week's commemoration of the World Day against Child Labor, the Official Gazette published a decree establishing the Inter-Secretarial Commission for the Prevention and Eradication of Child Labor and the Protection of Teenage Workers of a Permitted Age in Mexico.

President Enrique Peña Nieto submitted the Amendment to Article 123 of the Constitution to Congress in order to raise the minimum age for admission to employment from 14 to 15 years.

Mexico will therefore have a solid basis for ensuring that the child population is not incorporated into the labor market before completing basic education.

Contributing to the eradication of child labor is one of the lines of action of the National Development Plan 2013 – 2018 in the strategy to Promote Decent, Respectable Work.
