Stop Postponement of $9.50 Increase sign now

I support the Living Wage and Oppose Any Postponement of the Scheduled January 1, 2006 Increase to $9.50 Per Hour.






The living wage is working. During the year the Living Wage has been in effect, employment in Santa Fe is up 2.3\% (up 3.2\% in the hospitality industry) and unemployment and poverty are down (Temporary Aid to Needy Families is down nearly 10\%). All these numbers are better than those for New Mexico as a whole. A Living Wage is good for business, fostering loyalty, quality of work, and stability due to the decreased turnover. Most important, thousands of workers have been enjoying a better quality of life. The living wage is just and fair. It reduces poverty and provides dignity and respect to workers who often have the most difficult of jobs.
