Mexico is a popular destination for manufacturing companies, thanks to its low labor costs and skilled workforce. However, it's important to understand the basic workweek in Mexico before you set up shop.


The standard workweek in Mexico is 48 hours, with a maximum of eight hours per day, that could be negotiated. There are also mandatory breaks, for example half hour for lunch break and others.
