Social security for the poor?

Last May, I briefly discussed an announcement by Fox to create an Institute for Social Protection, with the implied intention of extending social security to the poor and working poor not covered by IMSS or ISSSTE.

Today's discussion will be even briefer (given that I have a job talk to attend, class to prepare, and presentation for a local Lion's Club to finish), but it appears Fox has been working on his proposal.

Meanwhile, in other news, the IMSS union is still claiming that more staff are needed, and other unions are mobilizing against the ISSSTE reforms.
