U.S., Mexico Appear to Settle Labor Controversy in USMCA
A new version of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) was signed by all three countries last week raised concerns in Mexico. The legislation includes a provision to appoint up to five attachés to monitor Mexico's labor conditions.
"I don't see anything in this bill, any obligation being imposed, that changes or modifies what was accepted in the treaty," said International Trade attorney Carlos Véjar.
"Of course, it sounds awful that there will be five people here in the U.S. embassy watching how Mexico is applying the law,” Mr. Vejar said. "But you don’t need to send them here for that, they can do that from the U.S.," he added.
