The Entrepreneurial Confederation of Mexicali supported the increase of the vacation time as proposed by Mexican lawmakers.
Confederation President Octavio Sandoval said the association supports increasing vacation time first in big companies and gradually to the rest of businesses.
More vacation will cause an increase of productivity of workers by improving family time, Sandoval said.
Mexico is one of the few countries in the world that allow only a week of vacation per year to workers along with Nigeria, China, Uganda, Philippines, Malaysia and Thailand. A bill introduced in Mexican Congress seeks to change that by modifying the nation’s Federal Work Law.
