Albuquerque_L

After Albuquerque voters overwhelmingly passed a minimum wage increase to $8.50 an hour, residents all over Bernalillo County wanted to do the same. Christian Norton of the organization Working America created a MoveOn Petition to the Bernalillo County Commissioners, asking them to raise the minimum wage all over the county. After the petition gathered nearly 500 signatures, the commissioners voted to increase the minimum wage to $8.50, bringing the county one step closer to a living wage for all workers.
