If ur wondering why Mexico is rioting atm and if ur saying “omg theyre rioting over gas thats so stupid” and blah blah blah.. Just know that the minimum wage in Mexico is $80 Pesos($3 USD) a day.
they earn $3 dollars a day
The gas in Mexico right now is $15.75 Pesos per liter (btw this is the cheapest gas price in Mexico I could find.. $15 pesos is about $0.80 USD) In order to fill up a 4 cylinder car, they spend around $550 Pesos($30 USD)
So lets say someone works at minimum wage for 6 days. They end up earning $480 Pesos a week ($24 USD). Yeah.. no theyre not gonna be able to fill up their tank.
They still need to pay bills, buy groceries, clothes, etc.The president of Mexico is shitty and ever since he got elected the country has gone to shit and they still have to suffer 2 more years until he is out of office
ALL OF THIS IS A REASON WHY MEXICANS IMMIGRATE TO THE US!!!!!!!! WE COME HERE TO THE US TO WORK AND EARN MORE MONEY TO SUPPORT OUR FAMILIE!!!! THEY DONT PAY ENOUGH IN MEXICO TO FUCKING SURVIVE!!!!!!!!!Update: yes I accidentally wrote $3 instead of $4. I apologize sincerely for that misinformation.
