#PosMeSalto: Mexico City Subway Fare Strike Challenges Neoliberal Policies
This Friday, December 13, the Mexico City Metro becomes the most expensive in the world when adjusted for the national minimum wage.
The 10 pesos, which comes out to about .78 US cents, for 2 tickets may not seem like a lot for some, but it points to the extremely low minimum wage in place in Mexico and the increasingly neoliberal policies being implemented by elected officials like Miguel Mancera, who was elected under a leftist banner and a promise not to raise Metro ticket prices.
In response, citizens have organized fare strikes called #PosMeSalto, which roughly translates to ‘well, then I’ll jump it,’ referring to the metro turnstile.
Mexico City Subway Becomes the Most Expensive in the World
Mexico City Mayor Miguel Mancera surprised residents of this megalopolis when he announced recently that metro ticket prices would be hiked from 3 to 5 pesos.
But even more surprising is that the Mexico City Metro, which is one of the busiest in the world with an annual ridership 1.6 billion (2012), will now become the most expensive amongst OCDE nations, reports Inteligencia Pública.
When adjusted for minimum wage, Mexico City’s new 5 peso (about .40 US cents) subway ticket do, indeed, become the world’s most expensive.
Minimum wage workers have to work 1.38 hours to earn the 10 pesos for 2 metro tickets. In the United States, based on the national minimum wage of $7.25, 2 tickets paid with money earned working the same amount of time would come out to $10.00.
On top of this incredibly high price, under Mayor Mancera’s plan, it becomes difficult to qualify for a discount. Only single mothers, the unemployed, high school students and on-duty police officers who can prove DF residency will be eligible for a reduced fare.
so um we just saw Muse live and oh my god wow yes they were A+
