Oxxo announces plans to hire Haitian migrants – Mexico News Daily

Oxxo convenience stores will hire Haitian migrants, the chain’s parent company announced on Wednesday.
FEMSA, a multinational beverage and retail company and owner of the Oxxo stores, announced the policy on Twitter.
“In FEMSA we are committed to inclusion and diversity, giving employment opportunities to refugee and migrant people,” the multinational wrote. “Through Oxxo stores, we hire displaced people from Haiti, giving them the opportunity to start a new life here.”
The announcement signals the fulfillment of a promise: FEMSA President José Antonio Fernández has said since June that his company would offer jobs to migrants and refugees.
Immigration authorities and federal officials have said that they “have no problem” with welcoming migrants “as long as they respect the laws.”
Over the past year, tens of thousands of asylum applications from Haitian migrants have flooded the Mexican refugee agency, threatening to overwhelm the system. The migrants are fleeing a combination disaster caused by crime, the assination of their president, an earthquake, a hurricane and the pandemic.
