    Already passed unanimously by the lower house of Congress, the legislation is expected to benefit more than two million people employed in private homes as cleaners, cooks, live-in maids, babysitters and gardeners, among other domestic roles. The vast majority of them are impoverished women.

    President López Obrador, who presents himself as a champion of the poor and underprivileged, is now expected to sign the measure into law.

    Under the legislation, anyone who employs a domestic worker must formalize the relationship with a written contract.
