Lawmakers pass bill making social security mandatory for domestic workers
The soon-to-be law is 'the last step' to make sure maids, gardeners and others get benefits
Both houses of Congress have now approved legislation that seeks to guarantee that Mexico’s more than 2 million domestic workers have access to social security benefits.
In March, senators voted unanimously in favor of reforming the social security law (LSS) to make the enrollment of domestic workers in a Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS) scheme obligatory, and lawmakers in the lower house of Congress followed suit on Thursday.
The reform, supported by 486 deputies and opposed by none, will become law once it has been promulgated by President López Obrador. It adds a new chapter to the LSS that stipulates that employers of workers such as housekeepers and nannies must register them with IMSS. Employers of full-time and part-time workers will be required to comply with the new law, meaning that they will have to make a monetary contribution to IMSS and retain and forward an employee’s contribution to the same institute.
The amount the employer and employee are required to be paid can be calculated using an IMSS online tool (Spanish only) and registration can also be completed on the IMSS website.
Information about how to register an employee is available in English in this Infobae article.
The law will provide Mexico’s almost 2.3 million domestic workers — over 90% of whom are women — with a range of benefits, including health care and free medicines. Their family members will also be able consult doctors free of charge at IMSS health care facilities.
Among the other benefits that will be available to domestic workers are sick leave, maternity leave, paid vacations, worker’s compensation, childcare, life insurance, severance pay and a pension.
The approval of the legislation comes almost four years after the supreme court ruled that domestic workers must have access to social security benefits like any other worker and over three years after a labor law benefiting such workers was approved. IMSS established a pilot program in early 2019 and almost 12,000 workers were enrolled in its first eight months of operation.
It is important to note that all staff; management, maids, gardeners & service staff working with Mazatlan4Rent have been registered & paying for these benefits since its inception.

Honey Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Labneh
Honey-roasted sweet potatoes with cinnamon and ginger pair perfectly with our favorite lemon zest labneh recipe, finished with a generous drizzle of good olive oil and flaky sea salt!
- Cinnamon, ground ginger, salt, and crushed red pepper flakes, oh my!
- Honey and olive oil, for the win!
- Labneh yogurt, made with lemon zest, salt, and your favorite plain Greek yogurt.
- Flat leaf parsley and green onions to help this healthy oven-roasted sweet potato dish achieve over-the-top greatness!
Roasting vegetables is one of the easiest ways to cook them, and a great way of adding vitamins, fiber, and FLAVOR to your dinner! Sweet potatoes can be roasted whole, in wedges, or in cubes. For this dish, we've opted for baked sweet potato cubes. Here’s how to roast sweet potatoes in the oven:
- Preheat oven to 425°F.
- Mix honey, olive oil, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and red pepper flakes in a bowl.
- Peel sweet potatoes and cut them into cubes.
- Place the sweet potatoes on a rimmed baking sheet and toss them in the honey mixture until they're coated.
- Bake until the potatoes are tender and slightly caramelized. How long this takes will depend on the size of the potato pieces.
How long you roast your sweet potatoes is entirely dependent on the size of the potato pieces you are baking. If you’re baking wedges you’ll need to cook them for 50-60 minutes. If you’re making roasted sweet potato cubes, your baking time is cut in half—roughly 25-30 minutes— which the reason we decided to call for sweet potato cubes in this recipe. The smaller you go, the less time it takes.
What Is Labneh?
Although labneh (or lebneh) is considered a cheese, it is made simply from plain yogurt that has had some of the moisture strained out of it. It is light and refreshing with a tart and mild flavor. It has been a traditional part of Lebanese cooking for centuries, but has been widely adopted outside of Middle Eastern cuisine, as well.
Eaten much like hummus, labneh is traditionally included as a part of any mezze spread.
How To Make Labneh:
Making labneh is so fun, and it's incredibly easy to prepare at home! The only “special” tool you need to make it is a clean kitchen towel.
Step 1: start with a tub of plain, whole milk Greek yogurt, some salt and a lemon.
Step 2: Line a colander with the towel, cheesecloth, or nut milk bag and set it over a large bowl.
Step 3: Scoop the yogurt into the lined colander and place it in the fridge to strain. The longer you strain your yogurt (up to 24 hours) the thicker it will get.
