Pension reform in Mexico

Attempts to reform the pension system for ex-Presidents has been blocked by the living ex-Presidents, according to La Jornada. The article claims that Mexican ex-Presidents receive more than 5 million U.S. dollars in benefits, if you include their staff, compared to the roughly half a million U.S. dollars received by U.S. ex-Presidents.

The dissident Teachers' union (CNTE) has said it will go on an indefinite strike if a pension reform proposal to the ISSSTE is submitted to Congress. The article is not even close to "fair and balanced."
