VICTORY: Albuquerque Enforces Minimum Wage for Restaurant Employees

route661

When Eric Szeman, the owner of the Route 66 Malt Shop in Albuquerque, refused to pay his employees the minimum wage they earned, they complained to the city. When they didn’t get any response, Pat Davis from ProgressNow New Mexico created a MoveOn Petition calling on Szeman to follow the law and Mayor Richard Berry to enforce it. After more than 1,900 petition signatures, and a successful boycott and protest, the city attorney enforced the minimum wage ordinance.
