Stop the Minimum Wage Increase in Bernalillo County!

I was pleased to be the first signatory of a petition to stop the ill-advised minimum wage movement here in New Mexico. If you’re a teenager or entry level worker, a minimum wage increase sounds good until you try to find that first job. It sounds good until your favorite “mom and pop” restaurant either reduces hours or shuts down all together. And it sounds good until you realize that a minimum wage ordinance wipes out the little guys while taking your choices away and making big businesses more dominate. And if that weren’t enough, you get to pay for it with higher prices for the things you least want to do without.

If you want to help small businesses and protect opportunities for entry level employees, sign the petition below!
