Press workers in Mexico face poor wages, job insecurity and a high risk work environment. “The profession’s standing has diminished because people know it’s dangerous to be a journalist and, furthermore, it doesn’t pay well,” said Ariel Muñoz, president of the University of Morelia, in an interview with the Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas.

According to a survey from the National Commission on Minimum Wage in 2012, the least a print journalist can be paid is 176 pesos or $13 dollars a day, $400 a month.
