As of October 1, 2015, the minimum wage will be the same in all municipalities.

To close the gap between the two geographic minimum wage areas into which the country is divided, it was agreed to increase the minimum wage in the "B" geographic area by $ 1.83 pesos from $ 68.28 to $ 70.10.

As a result, workers in Mexico will receive the same salary throughout the country, regardless of where they live or work.

This measure will immediately benefit approximately 751,915 salaried workers who receive a minimum wage and are employed in the 341 municipalities hitherto classified in the “B” geographic area, which, together with the 4.2% nominal increase in the minimum salary implemented in January 2015, means that by the end of 2015, the overall minimum salary increase will be 4.1%, the largest minimum wage increase in real terms since 1976.
