We need YOUR help contacting the New Mexico legislature to ask them to oppose the unfair Paid Family Medical Leave Tax.

This new payroll tax is expected to generate $463 million for a super fund in which working New Mexicans will have the biggest burden of creating this fund, with employees being taxed $5 for every $1000 they earn. This tax will hit the lowest-earning employees the most by removing hundreds of dollars from their annual income.

Show Up!

We need YOU to show up this Friday either in person at the Roundhouse in Santa Fe or on the Zoom meeting for the hearing. It is important that we have as many voices as possible ready to make comments and speak out in opposition of this unfair tax.

We will RALLY outside the East Doors of the Roundhouse Capitol Building in Santa Fe at Noon to show solidarity before we go to Room 317 for the hearing. Lunch will be sponsored by the Restaurant Association and served by Tomasita’s. The best way to show the legislature this payroll tax is not a good idea is by showing up and making your voice heard. If you are unable to make it to Santa Fe, please use the link to watch on Zoom and make comments.

Watch & Comment Friday on Zoom @ 1:30 PM
