They also aim to prevent exploitation and labor discrimnation with this agreement.
There were a lot of concerns regarding the safety and security of the Mexican workers working in the United States. The Mexican ambassador to the United States also expressed concerns about lack of labor law compliance in America, especially in the agricultural and meal processing sector. He has expressed issues regarding payment problems, safety issues and a failure to address violence in sections. He also highlighted recent cases of sexual harassment in the workplace. But with the recent changes, he looks optimistic about tackling all these cases of violence with the Mexican workers.
