The Cozumel Sun News November 25, 2017

In this edition of The Cozumel Sun, Mexico’s Minimum Wage increasing December 1, the Cozumel Calendar of Events for this week and December 2017.  A very important update of fundraising efforts for Brandon’s eye surgery and other Holiday and on going community projects!

Mexico Minimum Wage to Increase December 1

Mexican government and business leaders agreed on Tuesday to raise the country’s minimum wage starting on December 1 to 88.36 pesos from 80.04 pesos. The 10% raise affects 24.7 million Mexicans who work either one or two minimum wage jobs. This is an increase equivalent to $4.25 to $ 4.70 U.S. per day.

Rising prices have weakened Mexicans’ purchasing power for nearly two years, the Mexican peso has hovered around its all-time low, roughly worth five cents. Seen the other way, one dollar has been worth between 18 and 22 pesos since early 2016.

This increase does nothing to help the average Mexican family. One meal a day will cost 80 pesos.  They must work multiple jobs in order to survive. Everyone living here and visiting here should do what they can to help these beautiful people.

His wife is at home in hospice care, there is nothing more that Doctors can do. The two children are included in my toy drive (girls ages 4 years and 14 years), Grandma lives with them. I need a food basket for family of five.

Welcome to the Cozumel Sun! Our goal at the Cozumel Sun website, Facebook Group, and Facebook page is to provide the latest news and information to the many English Speaking residents and visitors to Cozumel. Our secondary but equally important goal is to raise funds to help those in need in our beautiful island paradise. We meet these goals with the support of our sponsors and donations of cash and goods received from our readers. We utilize this media along with a community store that offers office and school supplies, internet and telephone access, Copying, Printing, Lamination, Book Binding, Gifts/Novelty items, as well as gently used clothing and housewares. I am a one-woman operation; we do not have paid staff. All help and suggestions are accepted graciously. Readers are welcome to provide articles, pictures, and reviews to both our website and Facebook pages.
