The pilot program to provide social security for domestic workers approved
The Mexican Institute of Social Security approved the pilot program for the incorporation of domestic workers, with whom those who work in this sector will have access to social security, as ordered by the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation.
Said program will be implemented through a technological platform, where the workers of the household can register with the IMSS.
The program was unanimously endorsed by the members of the Technical Board of the Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS), composed of representatives of the employers, workers, and government, the General Director of the institute, Germán Martínez Cázares, this in the presence of the secretary of the Work, Luisa María Alcalde Luján.
"The ruling of the Supreme Court authorizes the IMSS to implement the pilot program and will allow it to be evaluated in order to observe compliance with the granting of health and social security. This is progress with justice, the political orientation that has triumphed in the Government of Mexico, led by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador and that allows equalizing the country, "said Martínez Cázares.
For his part, Mayor Luján highlighted this decision by stating that it is an act of social justice in a sector that requires the same working conditions as the rest of society.
"With the presentation and next implementation of the pilot program, firm steps are taken to recognize domestic workers, a group that has been extremely vulnerable for many years," she said.
