Santa Fe Mayor: raise minimum wage to $20/hour w/ incremental hikes to $26-$29

According to the Santa Fe New Mexican, the “City Different” could soon have the highest minimum wage in the United States if Mayor Alan Webber gets his way. The Mayor has plans to raise the minimum wage to $20 an hour from the current $14.03 rate and eventually raise the wage as high as $29 an hour.

That would give Santa Fe the highest minimum wage of any city or state in the nation (Seattle is at $18.69). Going to $20 would also represent a 42.5% increase over the current rate. !function(){“use strict”;window.addEventListener(“message”,(function(e){if(void 0![“datawrapper-height”]){var t=document.querySelectorAll(“iframe”);for(var a in[“datawrapper-height”])for(var r=0;r<t.length;r++){if(t[r].contentWindow===e.source)t[r]["datawrapper-height"][a]+"px"}}}))}();
