MEXICO EDITION. Reforms to Mexico's Labor Law, proposed by President Felipe Calderón, would take away rights won in the 1910 Revolution. With more than 300 modifications, congresspeople from the PRI and PAN parties are proposing to make firing employees easier, allow trial or temporary contracts, hourly salaries, and outsourcing, with allow companies to hire services from another company, without the worker acquiring seniority, retirement, or health insurance. The bill would also legalize "protection contracts," in which the worker is affiliated to a union controlled by the employer. According to one researcher, a PRI politician, Carlos Aceves del Olmo, designs "protection contracts" for several companies. Martha Elena Ramírez hosts Voz Pública from Mexico City.

Guest: Dr. José Alonso Bouzas Ortiz, Researcher, Instituto de Investigaciones Económicas de la UNAM, and Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (Conacyt), Cuernavaca, Morelos, México.
