"El trabajo en México" offers a rigorous and detailed analysis of micro data on labor in Mexico over the last three decades, examining the main changes that have caused vulnerability and lack of social protection for millions of workers, and the consequent increase in levels of extreme poverty in Mexico. The work also addresses specific questions such as, "Why is it increasingly difficult to find work in Mexico? What are the structural changes that led millions of workers in the country's formal sector to lose their basic labor rights (bonuses, paid vacations, housing and pension funds, overtime payments, etc.) in the last three decades? Why did informal work grow so much? Why don't government employees receive basic labor benefits? What can a worker in Mexico do to face this situation and be favored in the increasingly adverse world of work in the country?", along with many others.
