Mexico: Minimum wage – 22% increase in 2022

  • CONASAMI announced a 22% rise in the minimum wage for 2022, from $141.70 to $172.87 per day, higher vs. previous years

  • This follows government policy of aiming for a gradual recovery in wages, while also incorporating higher inflation

  • We think that the effect from the hike on CPI might be modest, although it inserts some upward risks to our forecast
