Albuquerque city council might repeal minimum wage increase passed by 66% of voters


Dems in Albuquerque need to get ogranized on this NOW! We need to let them know all hell will break lose if they pull this shit!



Snip> Two out of three Albuquerque voters—more than 139,000 of them—want to increase the minimum wage, giving 40,000 Albuquerque workers a raise. Six city councilors could undo it. It's mind-boggling.

***********************************************************************


YOU CAN HELP, Mr MAYOR, by reassuring your constituents and their concerned fellow Americans that you are NOT going to overturn the will of more than 139,000 voters who voted to increase the minimum wage.

There are rumors that the City Council is poised to try and subvert the Will of the People.

Please say it isn't so.

6. Why? What the fuck is wrong with them?

I live in Santa Fe, where we have a pretty high local minimum wage. People try very hard to complain about it, but without it the local poverty level would be significantly higher.

Oh, and for those of you who think Santa Fe is too expensive to live in, you're right. The county is totally depopulated, and wild deer now roam the Plaza.

In reality, this is a perfectly fine place to live. Every time you read about the median house price here, remember that most of us are buying homes well below that amount. The place I bought three years ago is about half of the local median price, and it's perfectly fine for me. Our home prices are greatly distorted by the ones at the top. Most of us, like most people everywhere, live in ordinary homes that are not outrageously priced
