In Mexico 2,257,206 million women are employed as domestic workers, of which only 3% are affiliated to the national social security system. 75% of domestic workers in this country earn less than the legal minimum wage. Because the working hours in Mexico have not been established for domestic workers, 30% of women have reported not having any rest time during their workday.

In Mexico, the Equal Value, Equal Rights program works with the “National Domestic Workers Union” (SINACTRAHO, for its acronym in Spanish), through our partner, CACEH (Domestic Workers Support and Training Center).

CACEH, as a civil society organization, which seeks to empower domestic workers through technical, professional and political training. Its target is that domestic workers exercise their leadership and knowledge as part of their political participation. It is from CACEH that SINACTRAHO’s domestic workers are trained to achieve a social dialogue allowing the government, workers and employers to recognize and guarantee their rights.

CACEH has carried out different actions in the states of:
  • Puebla, Querétaro, Chiapas, Guanajuato, Colina, Estado de México, Tihuana y CD. de México
