Minimum Wage Increase

Poverty is the the key indicator of student success in school and raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour with a mandatory CPI connected to it, could come close to eliminating child poverty in New Mexico, stimulate the economy and reduce spending on SNAP and medicaid.Historically, this works and the tired old arguments coming from the Koch brother funded network, that it would reduce jobs and hurt the economy are simply false. 

Furthermore, it would enable workers the true dignity they deserve so they may pay their bills, support their family financially and with more time to be a parent. This increase will cause all wages to be lifted and strongly stimulate the economy.
