NM Dems on Minimum Wage Bill

Last night, the New Mexico House passed a bill to raise the minimum wage from the federal  minimum of $7.25 to $12 per hour by 2021. Marg Elliston, Chair of the Democratic Party of New Mexico, released this statement:

“It’s high time New Mexico working families get a raise. Adjusted for inflation, an employee working full-time at minimum wage is making $7,500 less per year than they were in 1968. That’s unacceptable. New Mexicans value their independence and work ethic but the American Dream is the faintest star in the distance when a New Mexican can work full time for a year and remain deep in poverty.”
