The Santa Fe County Commission voted unanimously Tuesday to increase the minimum wage in Santa Fe County from $7.50 per hour to $10.66 per hour.

The ordinance passed by the commission also calls for employees who normally receive more than $30 per month in tips or commissions to be paid a base wage equal to 60 percent of the new so-called “living wage."

    I wonder how many people in the audience are the small business owners who are going to have to fund the county commissioners' largesse?

    "The 5-0 vote was met with cheers from the audience — including people from the immigrant rights advocacy group Somos Un Pueblo Unido’s cqUnited Worker Center. "

    Please, correction, Somos Un Pueblo Unido's is a PRO-ILLEGAL MIGRANT rights advocacy group that use to strictly help Mexicans. Nice new web site Marcela, where's your Mexican flag? Did you actually tell these paid activists what they were really doing there or did you tell'em they were gaining US citizenship?

    It must be nice to be able to buy folk's votes with their employer's money.
