New Mexico’s economy continues to be buffeted by bad news;
400 Intel workers being “redeployed” out of our state; and
While not as devastating, a local supermarket closing its doors.
I found this opinion article in the Albuquerque Journal to be quite interesting. While the article focused primarily on green chiles and happy memories of our state, the fact is that the individual moved to Nebraska (a Right to Work state) to find work.
While it is easy to get down about the bad news and some would love to lay the problem at the feet of Gov. Martinez (while ignoring the Legislature’s primary role in making economic policy), there is no doubt that New Mexico can and must do better.
